On the agenda of the event
Fact 1. Mortality from cancer of reproductive organs in the Russian Federation is still unacceptably high
Neoplasms still occupy the second place in the structure of all causes of death of Russians, leading to no less than 15.5% of all deaths. Besides, precancerous and cancerous diseases of female and male reproductive organs are one of the most acute problems in Russia, since they account for almost 40% of all cancer morbidity in our country.
Fact 2: Cancer is curable if detected early
In the 21st century cancer ceased to be a verdict diagnosis – today another concept prevailed: cancer can be cured, but under one condition – if it is detected as early as possible. That is why the detection of a malignant tumor of any localization at a late stage always indicates insufficient coverage of the population with screening programs, gaps in systemic preventive and health education activities and the difficulties of interdisciplinary interaction.
Fact 3. Cancer morbidity and mortality can be reduced at the national level only through joint efforts.
