Cancer going to be top killer disease
December 10, 2008 5:43pm CST
I was reading a news article in yahoo yesterday. It says that until now heart disease is the major killer disease in the world, cancer picking up very fast and by 2010 it will take the lead. One reason is said to be increased lungs cancer from smoking, but I think with so many banning, worldwide smokers are reducing. Reason for heart disease is life style and food habit, it seems to there is no changes in this and due to hectic life style rather it is getting worse. I was wondering then what would probably the reason for gradual increase in cancer?

That is really true. Cancer who till this day still remain incurable even though the disease has long been known to us it has remained elusive in terms of finding a cure. Although recently I have been hearing new medicines that are being introduced that drastically reduced the fatality of the disease but there are many who are still victimized by these killer disease and are dying. I just hope that someday there are many who can afford the technology and medicines. I think one major obstacle for this is the price that this disease entails is just staggering for an average person to afford for himself that is why survivability is very slim.

If the cancer is detected early and not spread to many of the vital organs, there are chances of remission and cure. Right now know treatments depends on types and location of cancer. It could be surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy individually or in combination. A lots of improvement has been achieved in cancer research and many cancer patients are surviving because of that. Cancer awareness is also important. Sooner the cancer is detected, more is the chanaces of remission.
