INDUSTRY.co.id - Yogyakarta - The Ministry of Health urges people diligently to do early detection of cancer as an effort to suppress the prevalence of cancer in Indonesia.

"Needs early detection because modern lifestyle is currently very influential on the increasing number of cancer patients," said Head of Sub Directorate of Cancer and Blood Diseases Directorate of Prevention and Control of Non Communicable Diseases Ministry of Health Niken Wastu Palupi in RSUP Dr Sardjito, Yogyakarta, Saturday (22 / 7/2017).

Niken said the trend of cancer in Indonesia today tends to increase. In addition to the modern lifestyle is not healthy, also triggered by the lack of minimum number of health personnel in handling the management of Cancer.

"The rise of alternative medical advertisements, so the lack of facilities for diagnosis and treatment of cancer," said Niken in a seminar on socialization and education titled "Let Together Defeat Cancer with CLEVERLY".

CERDIK, he said, is an abbreviation of health checks routinely, awake smoke cigarettes, Diligent physical activity, Diet with balanced nutrition, rest enough, and manage stress.

"Cancer that is found at an early stage has a chance to get a higher life expectancy, so if detected immediately go to health care facilities," she said.

He said the prevalence of cancer based on the National Basic Health Research (Riskesdas) in 2013 states the highest cancer prevalence in Yogyakarta, which is 4.1 percent, followed by Central Java 2.1 percent, Bengkulu and DKI Jakarta, each of which is 1.9 per mile. "Based on estimates of cancer patients, the provinces of Central Java and East Java are the provinces with the highest cancer, which is about 68,638 and 61,230 people," he said.

Meanwhile, Cancer Information and Support Center (CISC) chairman Aryanthi Baramuli Putri said cancer-fighting measures taken by individuals, organizations and governments could reduce the burden and death rate of cancer by 25 percent by 2025.

"Therefore I invite the government, and the whole society to be able to fight cancer together according to our respective roles and capacities," he said.
