Karkinos Healthcare is setting up a Distributed Cancer Care Network (DCCN) of service providers across the country to build capacity at scale and take cancer care closer to the population.
Unlike most cancers, Colorectal Cancer is mostly preventable on screening and is highly treatable, but only when detected early. Hence, it is necessary for the general public to be aware of the early warning signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer and contact the concerned specialist for early detection of cancerous or pre-cancerous conditions for timely surgical interventions and for better prognosis.
While the Covid-19 pandemic continues to stress hospital systems, Karkinos Healthcare’s proprietary distributed cancer care network envisages the use of digital technology and resource distribution to provide highest quality care closest to the patient’s home.
Karkinos Healthcare, being a technology-driven comprehensive cancer care company, will bring about a generational shift in the minds of Indian citizens towards cancer as a disease. The importance of early detection will be seeded in the minds of a common man and the value of screening and prevention will be prioritized.

Cancer ― the Emperor of all Maladies ― is one of the greatest health challenges to mankind and is one of the leading causes of death across the globe. I have personally seen the disease to devastate families and to drag people to extreme poverty.
