Awareness level of Cancer Warning Signs and its Determinants among University Students in UAE
Cancer is considered as a threatening disease affecting individuals all over the world and it is among the top three causes of death in UAE as recorded by the Ministry of Health. Young generations including university students are not immune to cancer particularly nowadays where the risk factors of cancer are common in our daily life. The purpose of this research is to display an insight into the awareness of nonmedically educated U.A.E undergraduates about cancer warning signs and prevention factors. This cross-section survey-based study researched 356 undergraduate students (40.8% Male and 58.8% Female) as a representative sample of the university population of UAE, who were questioned about their awareness towards cancer. Because anyone may be susceptible to have cancer, sufficient cancer awareness regarding prevention by lifestyle modification should be strongly acknowledged.
