In brief: Personal choice

Insurance companies have rules about issuing policies to patients with history of cancer.
It usually involves higher premiums and depending on how recently the person was treated for cancer, insurance may be denied.

Professionals called underwriters examine each applicant's information to determine suitability for insurance and the rate to be charged for coverage.
