Welcome to Adjah Cancer Support Ghana

In a given year over 24000 people may be diagnosed with cancer in Ghana, over 15000 people will die from cancer. Due to the cost implications of treatment, persons diagnosed with the disease spent more time to pay for the cost of treatment, and that had increased the number of patients who returned to the hospital with advanced cases of the disease, making treatment very difficult.

Some cancer patients travel from the Northern Region, Afram Plains in the Eastern Region, and other faraway places to access medical care at the Komfo Anokye and Korle Bu Teaching hospitals which adds more cost to the burden of treatment.

Are you concerned about Cancer?

The World Health Organization says that one-third of cancers can be prevented. Another third can be effectively cured with early detection. Here are four major ways to lower the risk of developing some cancers.

- John Smith
YOUR DIET

Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Limit foods high in fat, sugar and salt. Avoid processed meat and limit consumption of red meat.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Aim to get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day. Being physically active contributes to a healthy lifestyle which can reduce your risk of developing some types of cancer.

QUIT SMOKING

One in three of all cancers is related to smoking. Cut out the cigarettes and reduce the risk of cancer. Also endeavour to avoid second-hand smoke; it increases the risk of lung cancer and heart disease in non-smokers.

SCREENING

Some types of cancers can be found before they start. For example, colorectal and cervical cancer can be caught at their earliest and most treatable stages.
