Landscape of cancer care in Bangladesh

Dr Akram Hussain Syed considers the state of cancer care and management in Bangladesh.

The leading cause of cancer in men in Bangladesh is tobacco, resulting in some of the highest levels of oral cancers in the world. The present situation with treatment in Bangladesh focuses on late and advance stage patients as the country is without the necessary facilities for early diagnostics and screening.
