    Vijay Dhawangale, a global healthcare advisor, offers his thoughts on raising awareness against cancer

    Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 3: World Cancer Day is held every year on 4 February to raise worldwide awareness in the fight against cancer. The three most commonly occurring cancers in India are those of the breast, uterine cervix, and lip/oral cavity. Together, they account for approximately 35% of all cancers in India and constitute a public health priority. Screening is effective in the prevention and early detection of Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, and Oral Cancer said Global Healthcare Advisor Vijay Dhawangale in a virtual conference held on the eve of World Cancer Day.

    According to a paper published by the National Library of Medicine, In India, nearly 70% of the cancers; 40% of the preventable cancers are tobacco-related, 20% are infection-related, and 10% are due to other causes. Alcohol has been recognised as the second leading risk factor in India, strongly associated with gastrointestinal cancers. The human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis B virus, which cause cervical and liver cancer, respectively, have vaccines. Overall, around 20% of all cancers may be attributable to diet and related factors including obesity. Despite this, more than 80% of the people with cancer present to the facilities at advanced stages. Therefore, it is imperative that cancer prevention should be made an integral part of the health interventions and should be rapidly extended to primary healthcare services and facilities said Dhawangale.

    According to Vijay Dhawangale, there is a need to generate awareness among the general population and train healthcare professionals in diagnosing cancers at an earlier stage. This can only be achieved by integrating cancer care services in the primary healthcare system as it is usually the first point of contact of the diseased individual with the health system. Our experience with COVID-19 has shown us what we can do when we all unite against a common threat.

    While addressing the members of the Global Association of Government Service Providers, he explained the common diagnosis for cancer such as

    Physical Examination:  Your doctor may feel areas of your body for lumps that may indicate cancer. During a physical exam, your doctor may look for abnormalities, such as changes in skin color or enlargement of an organ, that may indicate the presence of cancer.

    Laboratory Tests:  Laboratory tests, such as urine and blood tests, may help your doctor identify abnormalities that can be caused by cancer. For instance, in people with leukemia, a common blood test called complete blood count may reveal an unusual number or type of white blood cells.

    Imaging Tests:  Imaging tests allow your doctor to examine your bones and internal organs in a non-invasive way. Imaging tests used in diagnosing cancer may include a computerized tomography (CT) scan, bone scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, ultrasound, and X-ray, among others.

    Biopsy:  During a biopsy, your doctor collects a sample of cells for testing in the laboratory. There are several ways of collecting a sample. Which biopsy procedure is right for you depends on your type of cancer and its location. In most situations, a biopsy is the only way to definitively diagnose cancer.

    Chronic infections commonly caused by viruses are estimated to cause approximately 16% of all cancers globally. Some of the most common forms of cancers such as liver, cervical and stomach cancers are associated with infections with the hepatitis B virus (HBV), the human papillomavirus (HPV), and the bacterium Helicobacter pylori virus (H, pylori), respectively. Today, there are safe and effective vaccines against HBV and HPV, which can help to protect against infection-related cancers of liver and cervical cancers.

    Most of India’s population lives in rural areas, for effective cancer prevention, integration of cancer care services in the primary healthcare system is the most appropriate strategy in the Indian context. Not every type of cancer is preventable, but we do know we can prevent many cancers through lifestyle choices alone. According to the World Health Organization, at least one-third of common cancers are preventable through a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and being physically active. said, Vijay.

  • Ciceroni hosts their first pop-up in Mumbai, A curation that brings forth 20+ emerging homegrown designers from  across India

    New Delhi (India), February 6: Ciceroni, A Hyperlocal Fashion & Lifestyle Event Discovery and Curated E-commerce Platform, will showcase some of India’s best emerging and affordable artisanal labels in Mumbai for the very first time. The CICERONI EDIT – VOL. III will take place at The Vintage Garden, situated in Bandra West, on the 11th and 12th of February, 2023. The immersive cultural experience will include a diverse range of fashion and lifestyle brands carefully curated from various parts of the country.

    Previously known as the local shopping guide in Ahmedabad, Ciceroni laid its roots in Ahmedabad in 2016 to help shoppers discover interesting shopping places and later evolved as a curated e-commerce platform.

    Their debut pop-up in Mumbai will feature 20+ homegrown designers such as contemporary western wear labels like Noura, Amalgam by Aishwarya, Label Puneet Kapoor, Noie Noie, Insom, Cross A Line, Eka Stories, Koshue, Studio 13/11, which will be bringing forth their latest collections for your brunch, soirees, Valentine’s Day parties, and travel escapades. Jewellery labels like NoNaMé, Diti, By Nirjari, Meeswa, Aimra’a, Creyons, and June chapters will display their artistic, bohemian, and edgy jewels for those who love to treasure their jewellery. Labels like Skinsootra, Toha, and Kashmiriyat will highlight the textiles and crafts of India for the connoisseurs of textiles. In contrast, Econock, a new accessory brand, will display its range of fashionable yet sustainable bags and belts.

    Neha Sheth, Founder, and CEO of Ciceroni elaborate on how the pop-up will be different from other exhibits in the city, Vocal for Local has been the underlying philosophy of Ciceroni right from its inception. Design is given primary importance in the curation process with an inherent belief that sustainability should be a norm, not a differentiating factor for fashion brands. We handpick labels at the early stage of a designer’s journey and provide a platform for them to meet the right kind of audience who loves to wear their individuality on their sleeves. For Ciceroni Edit Vol.III, we have created a curation high on design and wearability for the modern Indian. We work in the affordable luxury segment, usually ranging from Rs.3,000 to Rs.20,000, offering trans-seasonal clothing and jewelry styles for fashion-conscious shoppers.” 

    On why host an on-ground pop-up being a curated E-commerce platform, Sheth comments “Consumers face a dilemma in understanding the correct size despite sizing information and lack the understanding of how certain textiles will feel and fall on their bodies. Thus, big-ticket purchase gets delayed till they try it on, be it in a store or at a pop-up exhibition. Setting up a brick-and-mortar store comes with its challenges, including investment, inventory management, and resources. On-ground Pop-ups allow online businesses like ours to dip their toes in a physical retail format without having to bear the long-term investment impact.”
