Kenyans Join The World In Celebrating World Cancer Day

World cancer day is an international day marked on 4th February every year around the whole world. It is also called WCD

The day is majorly to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration, written in 2008.

Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissues.

There are different types of cancer for example, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, colon cancer, basal cell cancer among others.

The increasing cancer burden is due to several factors, including population growth and aging as well as the changing prevalence of certain causes of cancer linked to social and economic development. This is particularly true in rapidly growing economies, where a shift is observed from cancers related to poverty and infections to cancers associated with lifestyles more typical of industrialized countries. This is according to data reports by the World Health Organization 2018.

Cancer has been reported to be the most common cause of death in the country today as Kenyans try to fight the expensive ailment.

Lung, colorectal, stomach, liver and breast cancers cause the most cancer deaths each year.
