Abu Dhabi: A life-saving screening program has been launched by the UAE to detect early signs of cancer. A DNA test kit, which can be done at home, has intensified the fight against cancer. It can detect early signs of colon cancer.

The technology used in the cancer test is similar to that of the Kovid PCR test. Mainz Biomed in Germany launched the kit at a cost of 450 dirhams. The kits will be sold online at Dante Labs Genomics, Silicon Oasis Dubai from June 8.

The second most common form of cancer, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer 2020 by the World Health Organization. Colon cancer is responsible for 10.6% of all cases reported in the UAE.

Fear of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is the most common cause of death from cancer in men. Doctors recommend that people over 50 have a colonoscopy at least once per year. Tests can be done on people over 40.

This disease is more common among men than it is among women. Cancer can be caused by alcohol, tobacco, obesity, heredity, and consumption of processed meats and other foods.
