  • Oncology and Cancer Screening

    Malignancy is still one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in Indian women. Incidences of cervical cancers are much higher in India than in the western world. Types and profiles of malignancies that occur in Indian women are different from other countries. Despite the high incidence rates there are very few well set up screening programs in India.

    Women's Center encourages cancer screening for all reproductive age group women. It offers the complete range of cancer screening options as routine procedures for asymptomatic women. It also encourages more specific screening for high-risk groups.
