For years, it’s been observed that a lack of awareness of identifying the risk and symptoms of life-threatening diseases leads to worsening the condition. Mostly a normal persistent symptom holds within an underlying serious condition that demands early diagnosis to increase the chances to be cured!

 

The same phenomenon applies to the problem of Abdominal Diseases which include Abdominal Cancers and Obesity. Unfortunately, abdominal diseases have not gathered much-needed attention and people are mostly unaware of the risk that it follows. The information doesn’t reach a large number of people, hence Abdominal Cancers have come up as the second most common cause of cancer death with six out of the top ten causes of cancer deaths in the world being some type of abdominal cancer.

 

With the modest experience of 15 years in the field of gastrointestinal and bariatric surgery, Dr. Sundeep Jain discovered the issue of people being unaware of the symptoms that speak for the serious diseases and life-threatening risks that they pose. He strongly believes that Abdominal Cancers should get the vast attention of people across all educational, financial and social strata of society. People should know about abdominal cancer and its risk just like they rush to a cardiologist when they feel chest pain. Knowing about Abdominal Cancer will make them aware and help them notice the disease at an early stage so that they can get the effective lucrative treatment increasing their chances to be cured.

 

Abdominal cancers have persistent nonspecific symptoms hence, a large group of society is not aware of the plausible dangerous connotations behind it. This leads to the emergence of Abdominal Cancer Day. As we observe 4th February as World Cancer Day to create awareness about cancers in general, Dr. Sundeep Jain has conceptualized founding “Abdominal Cancer Day - 19th May” to specifically address Abdominal cancers and their symptoms to make people aware of the seriousness of this condition and importance of early detection. It was observed for the first time in the world on 19th May 2019 in Jaipur. Although we started with only 600-700 people participating in 2019, it got better with the participation of 16000 people including 10% international people in 2020 and in 2021 around 17 Lakh participation across India and abroad. This marked the awareness we are spreading by reaching out to more and more people and making them understand the abdominal cancers and their most common types which include esophageal, gastric, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, colon-rectum, and appendix. This understanding through this day will help people in early diagnoses which leads to an effective lucrative treatment that increases the survival rate at much lower cost and risk of complications.
