Cancer Awareness

The latest statistics on population health indicate that cancer has become the number one cause of death in Canada and Quebec, thereby surpassing cardiovascular disease. Since 2000, the tumors are causing the greatest number of deaths in Quebec. They caused 36% of deaths in men and 32% among women in 2012. Due to the aging population, the incidence of cancer will only increase in the coming years. Our role as patients is to be sensitized to this major health problem that affects our society through education, further education and more education! The website for the Canadian Cancer Society was selected by the staff of Clinic Agatha as one of the best on the different types of cancers and in general.
