Abdominal Cancer Day is observed on May 19 of every year. Abdominal Cancer is the type of cancer that occurs in the Admonen area of your body. The abdomen includes the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, esophagus, and number of blood vessels. Abdominal cancer seems to be the second leading cause of death cancer and its survival rates are very less. Abdominal cancer starts with stomach pain and stage 4 is very crucial where cancer has spread to distant parts of your body. Many abdominal-related cancers are incurable, but with regular chemotherapy and medications, it is possible to relieve the symptoms and improve life quality. Hence, it is a perfect occasion to raise awareness and educate people about abdominal cancer.
