The Early Cancer Detection Centre,Ernakulam is started functioning on 15th August,1984 with the help of Rotary Club of Cochin,Cochin Cooperation under the direct control of Regional Cancer Centre, Trivandrum.

The centre is focussing mainly the early detection of cancer, providing awareness to the public regarding the prevention and early detection.Even though the centre is giving main importance to cytology; histopathology work is also doing by manual procedure. Most of the cases are referred and voluntary cases are also reporting. Pap smear test, FNAC, sputum cytology and cytology of body fluids sending from other hospitals are doing here. This centre is conducting cancer detection clinics everyday, cancer detection camps and awareness programmes with the help of voluntary agencies and Govt. organizations in this district and neighbouring districts.

The centre is doing colnoscopy directed biopsy for patients with dysplasia on pap smear examination and these biopsies are reported here itself. The district cancer control programme project(DCCP) is also functioning well in the reporting year.
