"The only service to be done for our people is to give them education, to develop their lost individuality. They are to be given ideas: their eyes are to be opened to what is going on in the world around them, and then they will work out their own solution."Swami Vivekananda
The answer for all our national problems – the answer for all the problems of the world – comes to a single word. That word is “education”

This site is about information and technological developments that are taking place in the field of cancer (hence the name cancerinfotech), primarily meant for the general public. The thrust of the presentation is to provide information in such a way that each one would be able to find his/her solutions.
This site is designed under Four broad categories. The first one is about prevention, control and quality of life. There are several major diseases, including cancer, that require comprehensive simple precautions to be taken many years before their appearance. Also, the same precautions need to be taken to control the disease and have a good quality of life once the disease manifests. Steps taken to control cancer can benefit the control of other diseases as well. The data of this strategy is presented under “Prevention”
. This concept of prevention holds good until we find a way to tune our weak genes leading to a particular disease.
The second approach is to provide the latest general information about the technological innovations that are going on in the field of cancer, since, timely access to knowledge is important in controlling cancer. The data about this is presented under “Technology”
The third approach is to present the measures that need to be taken or decided primarily by the patients. These measures may be yet to be established for routine application or are on clinical trials or on initial stages of publications. This may be to do either technological breakthroughs or with the drugs or techniques that are already available near the patient. This will be presented under the heading of “Clinical trials”
The fourth one is titled as “Cancer experience”
, a section based on the compilation of feedback received. Here, one can find the experiences of the persons who have had cancer wherein the methods they adopted to overcome the emotional trauma, the alternative system of medicine that they adopted which helped them, and the side effects of treatment that they had along with the measures they took to overcome those side effects. Above all, their advice to the ones who are diagnosed of cancer and are presently in need of help is major theme dealt in this section.
In addition, anyone may contact us for any specific information about cancer prevention, management, facilities that are available or about handling complications following the treatment. We will try to give you as much information as possible to help in your decision process.
The purpose of this site is to give general information about the prevention of diseases and the treatment of cancer and not about prevention and treatment of a particular individual. The suggestions given in the site may not suit an individual because of his/her specific constitution or the associated ailments. There is no doubt that the system of treatment varies from patient to patient depending on the clinical status. Therefore, the decision to treat in a particular way solely rests on the agreement between the patient and the treating physician.
Please note that, any information given in this site should be checked with the treating/family physician before it can be applied either in the prevention/control of disease or in the treatment.
