Session 4 opens with various modalities available for cancer diagnosis, their status, the affordability, the chances of early diagnosis with these modalities, and using out-of-the-box ideas to deal with these issues. Keeping all this in mind, we concluded that early diagnosis and screening techniques should be used in a more widespread fashion, spreading awareness and educating people about the cancers may increase the chances of reducing of mortality and incidence of cancer.
Session 1 brought forth various points and recommendations that could make cancer care affordable. We went from insurance concerns, policy changes, early detection, screening, to banning tobacco. We found out that nearly 70% of our cancer burden could be preventable. Finally, we concluded that insurance and banning tobacco could lead to decrease in cost and burden of cancer care.
