2016 the 5th International (Guangzhou) Forum for Cancer Treatment was convened at Jinan University School of Medicine affiliated Fuda Cancer Hospital on July 2.
Today's society is seeing an increasing morbidity of cancer attributed by multiple factors, including environment pollution and social pressure. More than that, the lack of public awareness toward cancer prevention has led to low early diagnostic rate of cancer. Most of cancer patients are already at advanced stage upon the first diagnosis, leaving them no opportunity of having surgical resection. In this context, how to improve the life quality of cancer patients has become an important concern in the medical community.
