At the time of the first World Cancer Day in 2008, there were 7.6 million cases of cancer in the world. Now it has become one of the major causes of death the world over (WHO). Each year, this World Cancer Day, organised by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) is dedicated to prevention, detection and treatment of this disease.
