Women For Wellness: Cancer Scare? Oncology Clinic At Fortis LaFemme Is The Answer

Women are second to none. This statement is immensely inspiring, an absolute fact, an undeniable reality but unfortunately it is also true in the case of serious health conditions – especially the Cancer. Call it cancer, malignancy, tumour – the abnormal growth of cells invading the body, anywhere and everywhere is a harsh reality that can happen to anyone, at any age, irrespective of the gender. 

Agree or disagree, the statistics paint a grim picture in case of women. One in every 8 women is at the risk of cancer – be it that lump in the breast, abnormal growths in the colorectal region, endometrial, cervical, skin, ovaries and even lungs. The anatomy of a female goes through many changes right from childhood, adolescence, reproductive age, menopause and do not ignore those hormones! 


Here are some hard facts:

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the women.

  • Women of all age groups are at risk of cervical cancer. In India, it is mostly found in females aged between 35 to 50.

  • Endometrial cancer is the fourth most common cancer in females, globally.

  • Colorectal cancer is the seventh leading cause of mortality in our country.

  • Lung cancer does not spare women. It can equally affect females, especially smokers.


Don’t fret yet. Smarter women make intelligent health choices and here’s why we introduced Wellness For Women – at Fortis LaFemme, exclusive medical care for women in various medical specialities.
