Dr. Singh is correct.
When i was a kid, we cured 2 out of 6 cancers (excepting the common non-melanoma skin cancers, which are easily managed). When i was in med school, it was 3 of 6; now it is 4 of six. "cancer is a word, not a sentence." be vigilant, avoid tobacco, and get seen early if you have any signs.

In brief: All

All cancers are treatable, but many are not curable.
Treatment of non-curable cancers is geared towards providing relief of symptoms, especially pain, obstruction, disfigurement, mental health, and compassionate care.
