Cancer cases are on the increase yet awareness level of the illness remain low.

In Ghana, breast, prostate, cervical, colon and ovarian cancers are a few of the common daily reported cases.

Many cases according to medical practitioners could be managed effectively if reported early, however due to ignorance and lack of proper counselling, patients resort to other alternative treatment until it is too late.

Cynthia Boateng speaks to Dr. Alfred Twumasi of Greater Accra Regional Hospital on the need to have confidence in conventional treatement for cancers.
