People under 40 account for 20pc cancer cases in India: Study

A recent report on India's health situation revealed some worrying trends, especially in diseases like cancer. The report called India the "cancer capital of the world." It means India has more cancer cases than anywhere else. The report also showed that many Indians are facing health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression.

The most common types of cancer in India are breast cancer, cervix cancer, and ovarian cancer for women, and lung cancer, mouth cancer, and prostate cancer for men. The report also said that many Indians are becoming overweight and have high blood pressure.

The report says it's important for people to get regular health check-ups to catch these problems early. Dr. Preetha Reddy from Apollo Hospitals says that everyone, including the government and healthcare providers, needs to work together to tackle these health issues. She says investing in healthcare and promoting preventive measures is crucial.

Dr. Madhu Sasidhar, also from Apollo Hospitals, says using technology can help in preventing and treating diseases better. This means using tools like apps or devices to monitor health and provide personalized treatment plans.
