At-home cancer screening: a solution for China and other developing countries with a large population and limited number of healthcare practitioners

摘要:

Five-year survival rate for patients with all cancers combined,in China,is only 30.9%,which is much lower than those in developed countries.The three main reasons for the low cancer curative rates in China include differences in the spectrum of cancer types,in early detection rates,and in the percentage of cancer patients receiving standardized treatment between China and developed countries.The most important mechanism for improving the curative rate is to improve early detection rates of major cancers in China using novel and affordable technologies that can be operated at home by the patients themselves.This attempt could be helpful in setting up a practical example for other developing countries with limited medical resources and a limited number of healthcare practitioners.
