The Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Dr. Abimbola Sunday Okudero said the free cancer screening was held to stem the tide of rising cases of cancer in the State, create awareness among the general public about the deadly disease and intimate residents on the importance of early detection to any form of cancer.

His words: “The role of early detection cannot be overemphasised as it will save lives. It is cost effective and can easily be managed, but when people present late cases of cancer, it becomes difficult to manage, it costs more and survival rate is slim because symptoms do not show until the late stage”.
