Star: JOHOR BARU: Better education and technology access are encouraging more people to browse the Internet looking for cures and self-medication, putting themselves at great risk of seriously worsening their health.
In a bid to separate the false promises, myths and facts about heart disease and cancer, the National Committee on Community Services of Malaysian Red Crescent Society and the Parkway Healthcare Group are holding a public seminar on the latest advances in managing and treating these diseases.
According to Parkway Cancer Centre medical director Datuk Dr Ang Peng Tiam, there were cancers such as testicular cancer that had high chances of being treated.
For those concerned with getting bald after undergoing che- motherapy treatment, Dr Ang said there were drugs that could prevent such loss now.
The “Early Detection – The Path To Cure” seminar will be held at The Zon on March 24.
