President of the Dominica cancer society Yvonne Alexander says for a small island like Dominica its alarming the number of cancers cases on the island
She says it’s almost like an epidemic and is a serious cause for concern.
Alexander says on weekly basis the society becomes aware of one or two cases in some circumstances and therefore Dominicans must take this increase in cancer cases seriously.
Alexander says while there are many more cases of cancer that are not heard off and even if those persons are not members of the Cancer Society she would like to see them come forward so that they can be helped in some way.
According to Alexander early detection can save a person life. She says cancer comes in various stages and the earliest caught the better the chance of survival of the infidel.
