In a move to make a cancer-free Kasaragod district, Mangalore Institute of Oncology has joined hands by supporting the district panchayat and MCC in the cancer-free Kasaragod project.

MCC Director Satheesh Balasubramanian, Dr. Suresh Rao Director of MIO, Dr. Lal Madathil, District panchayat members and many others were present during this occasion.

Plans are to open early cancer detection centers in the district in the next financial year. The study that the district panchayat is planning along with MIO will shed more light into the prevalence of cancer in the district and also the data analysis would give a clear picture based on which the future actions will be planned.
