I am proud to be a part of a team of consultants who are the most skilled and experienced in the industry. Oncology treatment trends in the Indian healthcare space have changed drastically, especially post pandemic. Cancer cases in India have increased to an annual incidence of 14 lakhs in the population of 140 crores with over 70% dying due to the disease over a period of time.
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) estimates that there will be 12 percent rise in cancer cases in India by the next 5 years. The top 5 cancers affecting both populations in India are breast, oral, cervical, lung and colorectal cancers. Earlier tobacco and alcohol were considered the main reasons for cancer. In addition, today there are various other factors like sedentary lifestyles, obesity, increase in urban pollution, unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise etc which have possibly contributed to this rising incidence of cancer.
