Change in life style is a major contributory factor in the development of this disease.Early detection and properly implemented multidisciplinary approach are key  to the success of treatment.Cancer being one of the most curable chronic diseases and cancer conquerors contribute significantly to the family, society and nation, quality of life and approaches to develop less morbid treatment modalities become major thrust areas in cancer research.
