Help patients develop positive mentality, Paari tells doctors

Covai Post Network

Doctors should help the patients develop a positive mentality that they (patients) could recover from any kind of illness, said A. Paari, Inspector-General of Police, West Zone, Coimbatore.
Speaking in the Pancreatic Cancer awareness programme at GEM Hospitals, Paari said many people had killed themselves earlier unable to bear the pain during treatment. “That was a time when technology had not developed that well,” he said.

“Majority of the people think stomach ache is due to gastric problems and drink soda. When the pain becomes unbearable people come to the doctors. Most of the pancreatic cancer cases are
detected at the advanced stage due to lack of awareness among the people,” Paari said and urged the doctors to create awareness among the people on regular screening procedures and about the advancement in the medical field.

During the occasion, Paari launched the hospital’s web page service containing information on pancreatic cancer, through which patients can interact with doctors in and get their doubts cleared.

Dr. C. Palanivelu, Chairman, GEM Hospitals said any disease, when detected at the early stage, could be cured completely. “People need not go for any advanced diagnosis for detection of tumors. They can be detected through blood tests,” he said.

Ravichandhran, who is recovering from cancer, said patients should speak about the recovery process and the treatment they received. “A patient can recover from any illness, if he he motivated,” he said.

K Vijayakarthikeyan, City Corporation Commissioner and Dr. P. Senthilnathan, Head of the Department of Pancreatic and Liver Disease were present.
