Cancer Disease in Pakistan


Gul Bahar Washdil
It is a fact that cancer is an issue all over the world especially in Pakistan, which is a developing country. Cancer is an uncontrolled growth and spread of effected cells. It can effect almost any part of the body like lungs, stomach, liver and also the external organs of the body like the mouth, and breast cancer which is too common in females. It is estimated that, overall 30,000 new individuals suffer from cancer every year in the country. There is a lack of treatment in Pakistan due to which in Pakistan many people are losing their precious lives. Cancer that has emerged as a major health threat in Pakistan has never been  given due attention by the concerned authorities. To sum up, it is my painful request to the government of Pakistan to solve current issue and take an action regard above discussed issue.
