Cancer is the second leading cause of death world wide ( page xiii NCCP WHO, 1995) and is expected to increase by 500% in the coming 25 years (page iv NCCP Govt. of India, 1985). It is taking a heavy toll of precious human lives and destroying the families of the cancer patients due to mental agony and heavy costs of treatment. 2/3 of the new cases are detected in the advanced stages when treatment is ineffective; hence an overall National waste. Such patients continue to block and exhaust the resources which otherwise could effectively be utilized for the treatment of the patients in early stages thereby saving their lives and finances.
