    Agreed. I just hope that it will happen eventually.

Dont be embarrased guys it takes 10 seconds and it doesn't hurt

A "cure for cancer" is often talked about, though, of course, cancer is not a single disease, but hundreds, so to cure cancer, hundreds of individual battles have to be fought before the war will be over. As ever, early diagnosis gives the best chance to defeat it. A relative of mine had a breast lump and kept it to herself for at least a year. By the time we knew and urged her to go to a doctor she had stage 4 breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy with follow-on chemotherapy. Sadly, the cancer had spread to her lung and brain, and she died less than 9 months after the mastectomy. I urge anyone who is the slightest bit concerned about a symptom to visit their doctor asap. Chances are it will be nothing to worry about, but there is always that risk, and by early diagnosis you give yourself the best chance for a recovery.
    Staffs I reckon we are finally winning the battle against the big C. Yes early diagnosis remains the best way to go but my country is doing some great things to eradicate this incidious disease. Take a look at the work being done by the Australian Cancer Research Foundadtion. The CSIRO are also doing their best.

    Revolutionary cancer treatment on agenda

    Australia could lead the way for a potentially revolutionary cancer treatment called CAR-T that has the power to "cure" Leukaemia.

    The immunotherapy, which is being used in the United States, uses a patient's own blood to fight their cancer.

    The Australian Medical Services Advisory Committee will be examining the safety and effectiveness of the treatment over the next month.

    Sounds like another great breakthrough, guess all we can do is wait and see if this leads to a cure for leukaemia, cancer in children is for me the most upsetting aspect of this horrible curse cast upon the human race.

    Thanks for asking Donald, i am 1 year in remmission and doing well but ofcourse it takes 5 years to be declared cured, i have a checkup every 8 weeks which includes a nasal endoscopy, this is unpleasant but you get used to it. I have some taste loss and a constantly dry throat but thats better than the alternative.

    I am glad that you are getting over it Tex - as I have said earlier on in the thread that my mother wasn't so lucky and perhaps if she had went to the doctors at least six months or more before she went into hospital, things might have been different in a more positive way.

    I hope to God that it doesn't matter to me, although it shouldn't as I don't smoke unlike my mother.
