Posted: Aug 29, 2016
Today Cancer is the most deadly and painful disease reported so far. There is a programmed cell death (apoptosis) fed inside human body where cell forms, divide and die after certain duration of time, sometimes due to cancer causing agents this mechanism of cell death stops and cancer cells gets activated ultimately leading to cancerous growth or tumor. These tumor cells are of generally two types namely: Benign (localized) and Malignant (spreadable). Benign cancer is generally localized tumor which is treatable and can be destroyed surgically or through radiation. On the other hand, malignant cancer spreads throughout whole body organ leading to untreatable or treatable cancer. Tobacco related cancer (lungs, oral cavity, larynx and esophagus) accounts for approximately 50 % cases of total cancer patient in India.

Due to increasing number of Cancer patients in India, Government and Medical council of India has decided to increase the number of posts and medical seats for Medical Oncology in various Medical colleges and Hospitals.
