Detecting breast issues and abnormalities at an early stage is always favourable, and this can be achieved with the advanced screening technology available in the leading hospitals and healthcare clinics in India.

The procedure estimates the risk of getting breast cancer and shows how likely a woman is to develop breast cancer in the coming years.

Leukemia is a cancer of the blood cells – the white blood cells (WBCs). Generally, white blood cells are produced in bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and thymus gland. After the formation, the WBCs circulate throughout the body. The causes behind leukemia include generic disorders such as Down syndrome, blood disorders, chemotherapy or exposure to high levels of radiation. Patients suffering from leukemia face symptoms like excessive sweating, fatigue, unintentional weight loss, swollen lymph nodes and frequent infections. Unlike BCC’s, leukemia can spread to the other body parts including the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidney and testes.
Lung Cancer is the main cause of cancer deaths in both men and women worldwide. Cigarette smoking or even passive exposure to tobacco smoke can be the main cause behind the development of lung cancer. It can be of two types - small cell lung cancers (SCLC) and non- small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Smoking cessation is the best measure that can be taken to prevent the development of lung cancer. The stage of the lung cancer is determined by measuring the extent to which the cancer has spread in the body. It can be treated with targeted therapy - a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and even radiation therapy.
Lymphoma is a cancer of lymphocytes - the cells beneficial for the immune system. It affects the lymphatic system of the body. The lymphatic system involves lymphatic channels that connect lymph nodes scattered throughout the body. Lymph nodes are small collections of lymph tissues throughout the body. Lymphocytes recognize infectious organisms and abnormal cells and then destroy them. There are two types of lymphocytes - B cells and T cells - a malignant transformation in either of the two is termed as Lymphoma. It is one of the most common types of cancer and can occur at any age - even in children - due to exposure to toxic chemicals or simply due to genetics.
