Smoking is a risk factor


Successful treatment of oncology is possible today thanks to the development of science, timely diagnosis and high patient adherence to doctor's recommendations. However, in order to reduce cancer risks, experts recommend regular medical check–ups and striving to lead a healthy lifestyle, including quitting smoking.

Doctor of Medical Sciences, Head of the Department of Thoracoabdominal Surgery MCSC named after A.S. Loginov Arif Allahverdiev:
"The results of modern scientific research demonstrate the extremely negative impact of tobacco smoke on the course of cancer, survival and incidence of complications, including post–surgical ones. For example, in patients with a brain stem tumor, pneumonia (51%) and bronchitis (36%) are leading by a large margin among postoperative complications on the background of tobacco smoking."
