We think cancer is a challenging pause, not a full stop. We’re here to constantly fight for freedom from fear of cancer.
Taking the same thoughts forward, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, we have launched “Ayushmati” a NCI initiative
for Women’s Freedom from Fear of Cancer.
It is a part of our Awareness program #YesWeCare.
Through “Ayushmati”, women of age 40 and above can avail free Cancer Screening Session
on any of the pre-decided Saturdays throughout the year.
Hence, no walk-ins can be entertained, you are requested to visit with appointment only. You can request an appointment online or call us mentioning “Ayushmati”
Through this initiative we wish to encourage women to be attentive towards themselves, get benefitted from the scheme and be aware to ensure a better health. #YesWeCare
India is making progress in the fight against cancer. However, it still remains the second most common cause of death in India (after cardiovascular disease).
The five most frequent cancers in India women are breast, cervical, oral cavity, lung and colorectal.
More women in India die from cervical cancer than in any other country whereas, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in India and accounts for about a quarter of all cancers in women in Indian cities. The incidence rates of breast cancer in India begin to rise in the early thirties and peak at ages 50-64 years. Apparently, the average age for breast cancer in India is almost a decade lower than that in the Western part of the world.
Breast cancer is the malignant tumor (a tumor with the potential to invade other tissues or spread to other parts of the body) that starts in the cells of the breast. It occurs both in men and women. However male breast cancer is rare.
Among Indian women, breast cancer is the commonest cancer in Indian women. In 2018, 1,62,468 new cases and 87,090 deaths were reported for breast cancer in India.
Cervical cancer is a preventable disease as it has a well-defined, long pre-malignant phase which can be detected by regular screening tests and follow up. Unfortunately, most women in India are not aware about the screening.
Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among Indian women (As per Globocan 2018) New cases of cervical cancer detected in India: 96,322 every year.
Cancer occurring in the tissues of oral cavity (begins at the lips and extends backwards to the front part of the tonsils) or oropharynx (part of the throat) is termed as oral cancer.
India has one third of oral cancer cases in the world. Oral cancer accounts for around 30% of all cancers in India. Oral cancers in India estimated (Globocan, 2018), New cases: 1,19,992, Deaths: 72,616

Naked-eye visual inspection of the uterine cervix, after application of 5% acetic acid (VIA) provides simple test for the early detection of cervical precancerous lesions and early invasive cancer. The results of VIA are immediately available
Many cancers of the oral cavity have a long early pre-cancer period which provide during which they may have same symptoms. Early detection of these lesions is possible during routine general health check-ups/screening by doctors/dentists/health workers (oral visual examination) or by oral self-examination.
You can examine your mouth yourself by looking at your mouth with the help of mirror in bright light, for early detection of oral cancers.
