Meghalaya: EKH among districts in India with highest incidences of Cancer cases
SHILLONG, Feb 23:
Senior Oncologist of Shillong Civil Hospital, Dr Judita Syiemlieh said that the incidence of cancer cases in Meghalaya is lesser among the female as compared to the male.
"I am not sure about the exact reasons why the incidence of cancer cases among the female is lesser in the State. Probably, females are hesitant to come forward due to various reasons," Dr. Syiemlieh said while speaking as one of the resource persons on the topic "Burden of oral cancer and challenges in management of oral cancer in Meghalaya" during the CME program on Oral Cancer organised by ENT department Woodland Hospital here on Saturday.
She urged upon the young doctors to find out the ground reality as to why females are hesitant to come forward for treatment if they are suffering from cancer.
