Cancer is not a death sentence. It can be treated and cured, when diagnosed early, Hayrapet Galstyan, Academician, Director of the National Oncology Center at the Health Ministry of Armenia, told reporters, Tuesday. 

The expert said that cancer cases are growing in the world. According to WHO, 20 million new cases of oncology diseases will be registered in the world in 2020. As for the statistics in Armenia, Galstyan said 5737 cancer cases were diagnosed in 2002 versus 7877 in 2012. In 2002 there were 170 cases of cancer per 100,000 people while now this indicator is 240 per 100,000 people.

"We anticipate 10,000 new cases of cancer in 2022 in Armenia. As before, it will be mainly breast, lung, bladder, and prostate cancer," the academician said.
He recommended healthy lifestyle, healthy food and physical activity as the best methods to prevent cancer.

February 4 is the World Cancer Day. WHO experts claim cancer is one of the major reasons of death in the world. Here are some factors that cause nearly 30% of cancer cases: unhealthy food, excess weight, insufficient physical activity, tobacco and alcohol.   
According to WHO forecasts, in 2030 cases of death from cancer will exceed 13.1 million people.
