Prime minister Imran Khan built 2 cancee hospitals where many poor people get free treatment for cancer. In a country of 220 million population, just 2 hospitals are not enough.

Although Imran Khan is building a 3rd Cancer hospital in Karachi also. It will help to give a hope to more families who can not afford treatment outside Pakistan. Here is complete Detail of Shaukat Khanum Memorial cancer hospital, and Number of Patients who get free treatment till date.

Health Watch Series: What Increases Your Risk of Cancer?

While doctors have an idea of what can put you at risk of cancer, the majority of cancers occur in people who don’t have any known risk factors. Factors known to increase your risk of cancer include:

► Your habits: Certain lifestyle choices are known to increase your risk of cancer. Smoking, drinking more than one drink a day (for women) or two drinks a day (for men), excessive exposure to the sun or frequent blistering sunburns, and having unsafe sex can contribute to cancer. You can break these habits to lower your risk of cancer — though some habits are easier to break than others.

►Your family history: About 10 percent of cancers are due to an inherited condition. If cancer is common in your family, it’s possible that mutations are being passed from one generation to the next. You might be a candidate for genetic screening to see whether you have inherited mutations that might increase your risk of cancer. Keep in mind that having an inherited genetic mutation doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get cancer.

► Your health conditions: Some chronic health conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, can markedly increase your risk of developing certain cancers. Talk to your doctor about your risk.
