Iqbal Anjum

Iqbal Anjum has been a consultant urological surgeon for 18 years, and trained at The King’s College Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital London. His primary job is to diagnose and treat primary and secondary cancers of the urogenital tract. He said, “I find the role of Medical Detection Dogs very exciting. The work carried out by them is not only fantastic, it is very much an exciting and indeed an innovative idea. The team comprises highly enthusiastic and co-operative members wanting to succeed in their novel mission.

“I am keen to support the Medical Detection Dogs by assessing their potential role in the early diagnosis of bladder, prostate and kidney cancers. Once a confidence level is achieved, even some elderly patients may avoid having an intrusive Biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Where the primary source of urological cancer is not obvious, a significant hint at the diagnosis can be achieved by using the medical detection dogs, I firmly believe. We’ll conduct prospective and comparative studies in large number of patients to further confirm the positive predictability, sensitivity and specificity regarding cancer detection.”
