For the convenience of the patients, a screening desk has been opened in the OPD building of the hospital. Other necessary tests can also be done here. About 10,000 patients from all over the country visit Safdarjung’s OPD every day. On the occasion of World Cancer Day, a cancer awareness program was organized at Safdarjung Hospital on Saturday. On this occasion, patients who won the battle against cancer shared their experiences. Also tell other patients who came into the program that if you are diagnosed with cancer, don’t be afraid. Its treatment is possible, if you keep yourself strong and get treated, you can get well soon.
Chief Medical Inspector Dr. BL Sherwal said an awareness campaign will run until February 8 to raise awareness of cancer in the hospital. Facilities are being expanded in the hospital for cancer patients. We hope that there will be a large-scale vaccination campaign to prevent cervical cancer in women.
