Every year, about 5,000 people with potentially deadly head and neck cancer come to S

un Yat-sen University Cancer Center, the world’s busiest medical facility treating the disease.

Ma Jun, a specialist in nasopharyngeal cancer who has worked at the

hospital in Guangdong province for 34 years, says every patient has a heart-wrenching story.

It is sometimes called Cantonese cancer, as the inciden

e in Guangdong – 30 cases per 100,000 people – is more than 30 times higher than the rest of the world.

When Ma was a visiting scholar in the United States, he found many patients we

re Chinese-American, and most of their families were originally from Guangdong.

An epidemiology study in 2010 traced the risk gene for this type of cance

r to the Baiyue people, an ethnic group that lived in the area more than 2,000 years ago.

In 1998, the US National Comprehensive Cancer Network proposed concomitant radiothera

py and chemotherapy along with three courses of intensified adjuvant chemotherapy afterward to treat patients with a

dvanced nasopharyngeal cancer. It became the standard treatment for advanced cases around the world.

For years, Ma has wondered if it really worked for Chinese people.

A report published by major Chinese travel agency Ctrip showed th

at 160 million Chinese people have travel plans during the upcoming four-day May Day hol

iday. Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan and Indonesia are the top destinations outside the mainland.

Malaysia, which receives around 10 million Chinese tourists annually, began to i

ssue e-visas for Chinese in 2017. “The number of visa stickers on passports of Chinese na

tionals dropped by 70 percent in the first year after the service was introduced, showing its high popularity,” said Han.

Since last year, countries including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Turkey, Thailand and Sri Lanka have starte

d to accept visa application documents online and issue e-visas, either a bar code or QR code.
