Srinagar: With the aim to create awareness about the importance of preventive measures for Cancer, World Cancer Day was celebrated on Friday under the theme ‘Close the Care Gap' at Aryans Institute of Nursing, Rajpura, Near Chandigarh in association with Paras Hospital, Panchkula. 
Dr. Chitresh Agarwal, Senior Consultant Medical Oncology & Hematology Oncology, Paras Hospital, Panchkula interacted with the students of B. Sc. Nursing, GNM, ANM, B. Pharmacy and D. Pharmacy. Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Group presided over the seminar. 
While addressing the students, Dr. Chitresh said cancer is becoming one of the fastest-spreading non-communicable diseases not only among Indians but also among people across the world. According to an estimate, by the year 2030, cancer will overtake heart disease and diabetes to become the most common lifestyle disease, he said.
Speaking during the health talk, Dr. Chitresh said the initial symptoms of cancer should not be ignored because they can help to catch the disease in the early stages and cure it completely. He tried to dispel two important misconceptions, first that cancer is incurable and second that cancer treatment is expensive. Early screening and detection are the keys to cancer prevention, Dr. Chitresh mentioned.
On the occasion, various student activities including a quiz competition and slogan writing were organized. Since the year 2000, World Cancer Day is celebrated worldwide on February 4 to improve education, raise awareness and inspire personal, collective and government action to provide access to lifesaving cancer treatment and care for the millions of people worldwide with cancer.
