Resource Person: Dr. Shital Punjabi (Senior Gynaecologist and IVF Specialist)

She started the session by giving the Introduction, overview of Cancer, the dos and don’ts, and some clinical aspects of cancer. We should immediately seek medical help when our body shows some signs as some % of damage has already been done.

The 3 most important cancers in females are Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer and Uterine Cancer. We should have the appropriate knowledge of these as prevention is better than cure.

The occurrence of cervical cancer is due to polygamy, genetic predisposition, poor hygiene and vaginal tampons and recurrent infection. Symptoms are vaginal discharge, heavy bleeding, pain or swelling in abdomen.

She also showed a diagram on Breast Self-Examination which was followed by a short Q & A.
