The preparatory committee for launching a specialized tumor center in Al-Khums city held the first meeting and announced the start of building the center in cooperation with the Tripoli tumor center and Ministry of Health.
One of the specialists said the idea to launch the tumor center came after noticing a hike in cancer patients due to “poisons of factories”, blaming the lack of capabilities at the city’s public hospital.
The specialist added that the tumor center will be able to provide the necessary medical treatment after training the medics so they can work effectively afterward.
“There has been a building allocated for the center next Leptis Magna and the opening will be after 3 months from now.” He added.
