NCS works with other stake holders in cancer management to propmote early detection through regular medical checkups and certain self-exams. Often a doctor can find early cancer during a physical exam or with routine tests, even if a person has no symptoms.
The Nigerian Cancer Society is dedicated to lessening the suffering and limiting the number of lives lost from cancer in our country, and helps to build capacity for cancer prevention, treatment (including palliative care) and research. It also prioritizes public awareness in order to improve access to needed care.
