Cancer Treatment & Survival

Some people believe that having cancer means they will die, but that’s not always true. Many people live long, healthy lives after cancer treatment.

Improvements in screening tests (examinations that look for early cancer), early detection (finding the cancer early when it is smaller and not causing any problems), and cancer treatment are things that allow more people to live following cancer.

One very important part of surviving cancer is finding it early. The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the better chances are for living a long life following a cancer.
