New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Tuesday expressed concern over the increase in cancer deaths and stressed the need for preventive measures.

"Every year, tens of thousands of new cancer cases occur in India. The rise of various cancers is all the more worrying because of the high death toll, as well as due to the disruption in people's lives caused by stress and the heavy burden of medical expenses," said Dikshit while inaugurating Women's Health Camp in the capital.

On the occasion of International Women's Day, the camp was organised by Apollo Hospitals aimed to raise awareness about breast cancer as well as other cancers, including issues related to prevention and early diagnosis.

"Preventing a dangerous ailment like cancer is therefore is critical. I applaud the sustained efforts of Apollo Hospitals in raising awareness about cancer and its preventive measures among patients and the public," she added.
