The cancer burden in India is already high (approximately 1 million new cases in 2012) and is expected to rise even more with increasing life expectancy and changes in lifestyles associated with economic development. There is no comprehensive web-portal in India that provides information on common cancers in our country. It has thus become a prime requisite to design such an India-centric cancer portal.
"India Battles Cancer"is a portal that provides information on the leading cancers in India with a major focus on awareness, prevention and treatment of these cancers. The portal currently focuses on information for the general public and patients and will be upgraded in the near future to include relevant details for health care providers.
