On behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to welcome all to III Global Cancer Summit 2019 "LIVING WITH CANCER IN THE 21ST CENTURY" to be held on 06th – 07th December, 2019 at Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
"We must do more to end the many tragedies that cancer inflicts. About one third of cancers can be prevented, while others are curable if diagnosed and treated early. And even when cancer is advanced, patients should benefit from palliative care."
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells. It can affect almost any part of the body. The growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites.
Many cancers can be prevented by avoiding exposure to common risk factors, such as tobacco smoke. In addition, a significant proportion of cancers can be cured, by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, especially if they are detected early.
