“In 2020, we recorded more than 50,000 new cases of cancer, and we expect in 2025 more than 60,000 new cases,” said Professor Mokhtar Hamdi Cherif, Director of the Cancer Registry in Setif and the east of the country.
In an interview with Radio Setif, today, Friday, Professor Hamdi Cherif expected that more than 60,000 new cancer cases would be recorded in 2025.
The spokesman added, “It is noticeable that 150 new cases were recorded in 100,000 people, which is a lower percentage than in Europe.”
Mukhtar Hamdi Al-Sharif indicated that “60% of the cases that come to us to hospitals are in advanced cases, late in treatment and far from prevention.”
Among the most common cancers in men, according to the professor, are “lung cancers and chest diseases, then colon cancer in second place.”
With regard to women, “breast cancer is the most prevalent, with 14,000 cases, colon cancer, and the newest thing is thyroid cancer, which has become a widespread threat and is spreading strongly recently,” the spokesman adds.
And these cancers are increasing, Prof. Mukhtar says annually, by an estimated percentage of 7%, while cervical cancer is declining.
The director of the Cancer Registry in Setif and the east of the country called for the lifting of sponsorship operations, the intensification of prevention, and the development of a new program that is clearly and thoughtfully lined, and believes that the diet and daily living far from everything that is normal has contributed to the spread of these diseases.
The spokesman called for “activating preventive health investigations and investigations to achieve health security, in addition to developing a new five-year plan and program to confront the increase in cancer patients and activating the prevention program more.”
