A Fight Against Cancer: Impact Of Colorectal Cancer In The UAE


The UAE (United Arab Emirates) ‘s fast-growing economy has led to the rise of non-communicable diseases, such as cancer. One study claims that colorectal cancer is the second-most common cancer in women and the third-most common cancer in men. The illness is also among the country’s leading causes of cancer deaths. Accordingly, the government needs to intervene to curb this trend. Without government intervention, the mortality rates will increase among people aged 50 and below. In addition, awareness about the disease is minimal, making intervention necessary.
