NGO To Commence Cancer Awareness In Secondary Schools

By - - [General ]

Cancer Education and Advocacy Foundation of Nigeria (CEAFON) says it will carry out cancer awareness campaign in 20 secondary schools across the six geopolitical zones of the country in order to reduce the incidence.
The foundation disclosed this in its quarterly publication made available to NIGERIA NEWS on Friday in Abuja.
It said the campaign would kick start this month and climax April next year.
The publication noted that the campaign was part of the foundation’s commitment to educate the populace in order to promote the idea and value of cancer care and prevention, among others.
According to the publication, the male students will be sensitised on Prostrate and Liver cancer while the female will be sensitised on Breast and Cervical cancer, this will avail them opportunity to have foreknowledge on how to prevent, detect and care for cancer.
“CEAFON is committed to educating Nigerians to promote the idea and value of cancer care, involved in advocacy programmes that will reduce cancer incidence as well as avail patients’ optimal care.
“The awareness campaigns will happen in 20 secondary schools across the six geopolitical areas of the country. The secondary schools to be covered will include boys, girls and mixed schools,” it said.
NAN reports that cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.
It develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working.
Old cells do not die rather they grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells.
Some symptoms of cancer include fatigue, lump or area of thickening that can be felt under the skin, weight changes including unintended loss or gain, skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening or redness of the skin.
Others are sores that won’t heal, or changes to existing moles, changes in bowel or bladder habits, trouble breathing, difficulty in swallowing and unexplained bleeding or bruising.
