I wish I could say I had, I think I’d be a millionaire. There are thousands of scientists working on it, though. And each different area has come a long way in cancer research.
Each cancer is different, so they each need to be treated differently as they have different causes. However, we are slowly coming up with a better explanation for why cancer happens and then we can find ways to treat it.
Nope, unfortunately not. But I don’t really work on cancer so if I found a solution, that would really be quite unexpected.
There has been some progress though. Some cancers are now curable – especially if they are caught quite early. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is one example. For others, chances of survival remain quite poor, unfortunately. There are very different types of cancer – so even if you find a treatment that works for one, that doesn’t always help you with the other types.
Unfortunately I haven’t found a solution for cancer yet. I think we all wish we had.
There are lots of types of cancer and some are more treatable than others. (Almost) every type has to be looked at separately as there are different causes. There are lots of scientists working on this and for some cancers, you stand a far better chance of survival than for others. Generally, it is better if the cancer is only in one area rather than in more than one.
I hope this answers your question.
