Medical specialists say that many of deaths could be prevented if the disease will be diagnosed on an early stage. The earlier health problem is identified, the higher are chances of successful treatment.
Moreover, some cure methods can be used only at the beginning of the disease and are contraindicated when a condition reaches an advanced stage.
