Does the cure for cancer lie in the immune system?

There will be no: Single cure for all cancers, but many fault immune system for inadequate detection of aberrant cells, called the "surveillance system". Those living with transplants are susceptible to higher risks of lymphoma and skin cancer, maybe others. Some immune modulators are used in prostate cancer. Intense, slow research effort here.
