Launched earlier this week, the Office of High Complexity in Oncology (Unacon) of the University Hospital João de Barros Barreto (HUJBB), in Bethlehem, will help meet the urgent need of the population diagnosed with cancer in Para A Unacon is inserted in Oncology Care State Plan, which provides for other units in the three macro-regions of Belém, Santarém and Tucuruí.

With all units operating, the state will be completely covered for cancer care. This will make the hospitals of the capital, as the Ophir Loyola, be comfortable and be able to guarantee a greater care and better quality for patients, says the coordinator of Oncology State of the State, Marta Costa, for whom the situation is worrisome for cancer, both national and state levels.

Data from the National Cancer Institute (Inca) show that the estimate for 2012 among the male population in Para 930 new cases is related to the prostate, 430 of stomach, 270 of trachea, bronchus and lung 150, colon and rectum. Among men, cases of stomach cancer are more common due to poor eating habits, especially the excess salt and spicy foods, the coordinator explains.

Among women, the estimate is 810 new cases of cervical cancer, 740 breast, 250, 240, stomach and thyroid cancer. Moreover, for every thousand cases of cancer in general, 50% require surgical oncology, 70% chemotherapy and 60% radiotherapy. While in Brazil women present more frequently, cases of breast cancer in Para is a higher incidence of cancer of the cervix. This is troubling, because prevention for this type of cancer occurs simply through Pap smears, known as preventive (PCCU), says Marta.
