The most common cancer types in Turkey are breast, thyroid, bowel; Stating that men have lung, prostate and colorectal cancers, Anadolu Medical Center Medical Oncology Specialist and Oncological Sciences Coordinator Prof. Dr. Necdet Üskent said, “We can reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer by 5-30 percent by walking for only 30 minutes, 40 days a week. It is in our hands to reduce the risk of cancer,” he said.

prof. Dr. Necdet Üskent shared 1 suggestions to reduce the risk of cancer on the occasion of April 7-11 Cancer Week.

According to the estimation report prepared by the American Cancer Society; A total of 2022 million new cancer cases are predicted in the USA in 1.9. Worldwide, 19.3 million new cancer cases and 16.4 million cancer deaths are reported annually. Saying that the predicted increase in cancer cases will be 2040 percent by 47, Anadolu Medical Center Medical Oncology Specialist and Oncological Sciences Coordinator Prof. Dr. Necdet Üskent said, "Accordingly, it is estimated that approximately 2040 million new cancer cases will be seen worldwide in 29.5."

Highest awareness in breast cancer

Underlining that awareness of breast cancer is increasing in Turkey every year, with the effect of strong studies such as the Pink Ball on the Field project implemented by Anadolu Medical Center and Anadolu Efes Sports Club. Dr. Necdet Üskent said, “However, the numbers are still high. Last year, breast cancer surpassed other cancer types for the first time and became the most common cancer in the world. For the last 20 years, lung cancer has been the top priority," he said.

We have the ability to prevent 3/2 of cancers due to environmental factors.

Emphasizing that the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer can be reduced by 5-30 percent by walking for only 30 minutes 40 days a week, Prof. Dr. Necdet Üskent, “When ideal conditions can be met, it is possible to prevent two-thirds of cancers due to environmental factors. Early diagnosis is the most important factor affecting success in cancer treatment. Having a check-up at least once a year enables early detection of many diseases, not just cancer.”

According to the data of the American National Cancer Institute, the number of cancer-related deaths in the last 30 years has decreased by 31 percent due to increased awareness and improvements in treatment. It is estimated that the cancer-related death rate, which was 2000% in Europe at the beginning of the 10.1s, will decline to 2030 percent in the 5s.

Artificial intelligence technology in diagnosis

Stating that thanks to the developments in the science of pathology and new diagnostic methods, many important information from the cancer subtype to which drugs to be used in the treatment can be determined within 24 hours. Dr. Necdet Üskent, “According to a scientific study; It will be possible to detect the cancer cell, when it is at its smallest size yet to be detected, with 92.4 percent accuracy with software that makes predictions based on recognizing visual patterns.” prof. Dr. Üskent said that immunotherapy in cancer treatments, smart drugs in chemotherapy, smart biopsies, robotic surgery, cancer vaccines, personalized vaccine treatments and targeted radiotherapy applications also make a difference.
