Cancer incidence is rising rapidly in India and in an attempt to find Indian solutions to Indian problems, the 1st Indian Cancer Congress was organised recently in Delhi. More than 2500 delegates attended this conference, making it a grand success. For the first time the surgical, medical and radiation oncologists organised a common conference with a single aim: to help tackle the growing problem of cancer in our country.
It was a great platform for Oncologists all over the country to showcase their work and I was fortunate to be awarded the Best Poster Prize for my work on Breast Cancer.
The next Indian Cancer Congress will be organised in Bangalore in a few years time and I am eagerly looking forward to it.
