Enough is enough! It's high time we start taking life saving actions to stop or curb this "life sucking" disease Known as CANCER.

Have you ever lost someone close or so dear to you to this "life sucker" ? If you haven't, we pray you don't. It can get really really really bad! You can save yourself, the ones you love and the people around you with this power information and innovation. 
"Knowledge when properly applied is true power." 
According to WHO, “Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally. Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.”

The health organisation also records that approximately 70% of deaths from cancer occur in low- and middle-income countries, of which Nigeria is one.

In Nigeria, according to the National Cancer Control Plan (2018–2022), cancer is responsible for 72,000 deaths in Nigeria every year, with an estimated 102,000 new cases of cancer annually.

Also, based on the above document, the mortality ratio of cancer in Nigeria when compared to other nations is really high because, for example, 19% of all breast cancer cases in the US result in death, this percentage is 51% in Nigeria.

Breast cancer is the most common incident of cancer among women and prostate cancer is the most common among men in Nigeria.

According to Global Cancer Observatory 2018 (Globocan), Nigeria recorded 115 950 cases of cancer. 22.7% of that was diagnosed of breast cancer, 12.9% were diagnosed of cervical cancer, 11.3% were diagnosed of prostate cancer, 5.8% were diagnosed of colorectum cancer, 4.6% were diagnosed of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 42.7% were diagnosed of other cancers types.

Basically, what this means is that breast cancer and cervical cancer are the most common cases generally.

Therefore, the number of women diagnosed with cancer is higher than that of men.
