Great question: This is a difficult question to prove an answer to. I would argue did it is possible for somebody to be immune to cancer. I expect one day we will see preventive vaccines that may decrease the incidence of cancer. We already see this with the hpv vaccine and Hepatitis B Vaccine decreasing cervical and liver cancer respectively. However these vaccines are against the viruses that cause the cancer.
