Colorectal cancer programme needed

CYPRUS lacks an organised prevention programme for colorectal cancer, the third most popular on the island after breast and prostate cancer, the Association of Cancer Prevention said on Wednesday.

In a statement, it said between 2008 and 2012, some 12 per cent of cancer cases were colorectal with 353 instances recorded each year, 206 for men and 147 for women.

“In Cyprus, there is no organised cancer prevention programme as is set out in European guidelines so every one of us must look after ourselves and undergo the recommended tests.”
