YOKNEAM, ISRAEL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- Lumenis Ltd. (NASDAQ: LMNS), the world's largest medical energy-based solutions company for surgical, ophthalmology and aesthetic applications, announced today its support for the creation of World Head and Neck Cancer Day. The online petition to declare July 27 as World Head and Neck Cancer Day can be found at www.ahns2014.org/petition.
Head Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) is the leading cause of death and disability in most parts of the world. The vast majority of HNSCC can be prevented or cured if detected early, but millions of people suffer from delayed diagnosis, inadequate treatment and inappropriate rehabilitation and palliation. To address the global challenge of HNSCC, the World Head and Neck Cancer Day petition calls for a multi-sectoral response from governments, non-government organizations, health care professionals, civil society, academia and industry.
"Improving public awareness of head and neck cancer can help save lives by encouraging earlier diagnosis and treatment," said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, Chief Executive Officer of Lumenis. "Lumenis is proud to support the creation of World Head and Neck Cancer Day and remains committed to advancing patient education and clinical care in partnership with the HNSCC community."
Lumenis recently introduced Throat-Cancer.com, an educational website for patients. Visitors to the site can find disease information, an overview of surgical treatment options and videos with medical experts and patients sharing their insights about the condition.
