Oral Cancer is the most common cancer causing death in men in Pakistan mainly due to paan, niswaar, betel nut and gutka chewing. In most cases, detection comes at the last stage leaving very little time for remedial action. Oral Caner is mostly prevalent in low income groups in katchi abadis, hutments and slum areas.
Surgery, post operative care and medication is very expensive specially under the prevailing inflationary trends. Patients most often do not come for treatment due to non-affordable cost or discontinue treatment in the midstt of treatment process.
Keeping the social aspect at forefront, the Management of PEBS Hospital has taken this big initiative to build an Oral Cancer Surgery Unit. Treatment is absolutely FREE OF COST for all patients irrespective of social and financial status. Surgeries have already commenced with a number of suffering patients in wait list. We are also embarking on a campaign to raise awareness on the aftermath of paan and gutka.
Mr. Qazi Sajid Ali, President, Pakistan Bank Society said in his inauguration speech, ” We are committeed to work for the eradication of Oral Cancer which brings misery, fatality and social burden for the entire family of the patient. Their income is reduced often leaving them below the poverty line in a short span of time. The management of PEBS Hospital is grateful to its value patrons and donors who gave their unstinted support during the formative process of the Unit.”
