In brief: Cancer

Certain cancers are more responsive to chemotherapy or radiation.
Also other important factors need to be taken into consideration like if cancer is detected early, kind of cancer,and age.

In brief: Because...

Cancer is not a singular thing.
Rather,there is a large variation of different types of cancers,each with a different pathway on injuring the person. Some cancers are simple to cure, like acute lymphoblastic leukemia in young people. Others are terribly difficult, like T-cell lymphoma. We are still in our infancy of understanding all the different types of cancer, but research continues to advance
