Everyone says we need to find "a cure for cancer" and YES, definitely, but there are so many different types that we need at least 50 separate cures. More complex than people give it credit for. What does everyone here think?

I would love nothing more than to find more ways to prevent it from ever occurring than to treat it. I do think early detection is really helping with overall outcomes as well.

I think cancer will continue to mutate so while we “cure” it the body will figure out how to make it incurable anyway. The real question is how to detect it before it actually happens.

However, forget curing cancer..let’s take about why we know next to very little of the brain, mental disorders and addiction.

I think that more than treating each cancer separately is doing what chemotherapy does, this treatment attacks all cancer cells in the body, that is, the cure should be to treat the cell directly.

It is very complex but it is something that little by little will be achieved, what must happen is that the wheel of investigation must not stop.

In my opinion, all cures are investigated separately without problems, because for each type of cancer there is a specialty of medicine and for each specialty, there are many researchers trying to find a cure.

Many investigations are being done right now to attack the different types of cancer, and many others are being done to try to kill cancer cells before they grow, both are valid and in my opinion, more public money should be directed to help these investigations.
