3C Cancer Care Centre, part of Nadkarni’s 21st Century Hospitals, Vapi, finished 2 successful year of its existence and services in south Gujarat. It was shocking to see the increasing trend of cancer in this part of India. Few salient features noted during this first year:
• Head Neck cancers and Lung cancers the most common in men breast cancer commonest in the women
• Total lack of awareness among the people regarding symptoms of cancer
• 64% cases registered at the centre-diagnosed at stage 3/ stage 4
• Patients spending long time diagnosing, changing doctors and taking alternative medications for cancer which have no proven efficacy (other systems of medicine) before getting the right treatment
• Superstitions regarding cancer treatment
• Lack of protocols among doctors, regarding diagnosing and treating cancer cases
In view of the above situation in south Gujarat, NADKARNI MEDICAL FOUNDATION, and the 3C Cancer Centre has decided to publish a 6 monthly issue regarding cancer update for doctors and family physicians, called the 3C Cancer Connect.
This issue shall be providing you a summary of the work, the foundation and the cancer centre has done, along with 3-4 case discussions and topics regarding cancer update and management, with the only intention of spreading awareness and unity among doctors, regarding Cancer management.
The cancer centre wants doctors to be on the panel, hold meetings and get together for cancer awareness and update among people and doctors, in order to form protocols and detect and manage cancer at an early stage and increase general awareness about SCREENING.
The doctor can register at the 3 Cancer centre, if interested, for being on panel, to help the cause. The registered doctors interested for spreading cancer awareness, once a team, can refer cases, share experiences, hold meetings, get together, CMEs and updates along with cancer screening camps at their localities, in order to help the cause, with the help of the 3C cancer centre.
I hope, you will get inspired and get registered to the centre- for increasing cancer awareness. REGISTRATION IS FREE (for registering see below)
We have also developed cancer software and registry for reporting cancer causes which we are already supplying to the government. Shortly, developing an online website for connectivity among doctors for interaction- 3ccancerconnect.com
This current issue shall give you a summary of activities that the 3C cancer team has done and also highlight four case reports.

Your's Sincerely,

Dr. Akshay Nadkarni
