Fig Tree News Team"Just mention the word cancer, and so many dreadful feelings are conjured up by our Bahamian society. No other disease has had such a profound affect (next to the HIV virus) on the human psychy like cancer to the point where scientists around the world are literally working day and night to find a cure.

Here in The Bahamas, Breast Cancer has become the most common form of cancer found in women. In men, it is Prostate Cancer. This mysterious disease has been the centre of many worthy causes by a number of committed civic organizations, whose goal is to educate the public and to provide encouragement on the best available care and treatment for those who are diagnosed with it.

A recent study discovered that a significant percentage of Bahamian females possess an abnormal gene that exposes them to cancer, and according to what was found, their condition has been ranked the highest in the world. This of course, has led medical experts in the country to step up their efforts and are reportedly getting ready to conduct a final round of cancer testing around the Family Islands."
