Regular check-up helps timely detection of cancer in woman

Tuesday, 20 February 2018

PUNE: There is a general tendency of avoiding a regular full-body medical check-up, fearing it might give unpleasant results. But this regular check-up saved the life of a 67-year-old woman from Magarpatta, who was diagnosed with a rare fallopian tube stage two cancer.

Since this cancer was asymptomatic (ie without any visible symptoms), doctors noted it was diagnosed only because of timely detection. They added that by the time the cancer would have shown its symptoms, it would have been very late.
