Cancer Awareness and Support Activities Around the World
Endoscopes are used to test for and treat a variety of diseases. Stomach and colorectal cancers, for example, have a high chance of being cured with early detection and treatment, and endoscopes are beneficial in detecting and treating such cancers. However, since stomach and colorectal cancers both present almost no symptoms in their early stages, many precious lives are lost due to missed opportunities for early detection and treatment without cancer screening and detailed examinations.
To raise awareness among as many people as possible of the importance of the early detection and treatment of cancer, Olympus is engaged in a variety of cancer awareness activities around the world.
