Cancer Resources in Urdu
Urdu is the national language of Pakistan and one of the 23 official languages of India. It is estimated that over 100 million people speak Urdu worldwide. Cancerbackup, a British organization whose mission is "to give cancer patients and their families the up-to-date information, practical advice and support they need to reduce the fear and uncertainty of cancer" has produced four cancer-related fact sheets in English and Urdu. The four fact sheets, available in .pdf format, are "Breast Cancer", "Chemotherapy", "Radiotherapy", and "Surgery".
