In our country , most patients come at later stages of diseases because of many factors like lack of basic medical facilities at local  hospitals, illiteracy, lack of awareness and stigma of cancer being as incurable disease said Dr Mahindru adding even in stage 4 cancer , duration of symptoms , disease control and quality of life are important factors and with treatment , all this can be achieved.
