A charity found that thing with cancer therapy was the “holy grail” of the disease’s research, meaning the public was unaware of developments that made patients live longer. The Cancer Research Institute (ICR) said that this effect could lead to an overly binary “cure or nothing” approach to cancer that might not help. Not only masking progress but also not understanding how to best deal with future disease.
A survey by the association found that, although people diagnosed with cancer have improved their lives by ten years. And their quality of life has improved, very few people believe that cancer can be organized in the long term. From the last ten years, it has been observed that patients tend to live more ten years from the time cancer is diagnosed. Therefore making it more manageable. In contrast, more than 40% said they believe they can treat heart disease for the long term, and more than 70% of people say they can treat diabetes. The Cancer Research Institute a charity and research institute, has focused mainly on treatment neglected the considerable progress achieved. The ICR states that the reality of many advanced cancers is that there is no cure yet, but they are trying. To provide personalized treatment so that patients’ life can be extended. The charity is shouting for more considerable attention to the ability of cancer resistance treatments to make more people live longer. A poll of 2,100 members and 365 patients found that one-third have misinterpreted the widely used term “clear all”. To indicate that the disease has cured completely than just being untraceable and still May relapse. 20% of the public and 17% of cancer patients do not know that cancer can resist treatment and relapse.
Hence there are different treatments for cancer like radiation therapy, surgery, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, etc. Health experts are trying to discover more and more treatments and medicines to finish cancer.
