Is There Cure For Cancer
Too many causes: Cancer is not one illness. Each different tissue in the body can get a change in its dna and the instructions on when to get ready, grow, divide, and rest.

These range in susceptibility due to faster growth (chemotherapy and radiation),, specific growth hormone use (breast cancer), specific protein makers (lymphoma) and others I am applying for grants for. ...Read more
Yes: The immunogenic proteins characterizing a number of major cancers have been defined. They have been sequenced and the functional monoclonals targeting the advanced forms of disease are in clinical trails. The vaccines for high risk patients are being developed and when given with chemo, a possible radiolabelled mAb and immunostimulant may change the entire picture of clinical cancer. ...Read more
Cancer is tough: There is not one cancer but many. Every type is a separate issue with particular characteristics. Many cancers are easily cureable. Many cancers are generally benign and we don't bother to treat. Others we don't bother to treat because we don't have any idea how.
