Cancer is the second most common cause of death in developed countries. Statistical data from the last few years indicate that cancer is responsible for about a quarter of all deaths. Although the number of cases continues to grow, diagnostic methods are improving, and if the cancer is detected early, it can often be effectively treated. This is partly because scientists and doctors from around the world are becoming more knowledgeable in the field of oncology and they discover more effective ways to diagnose and treat cancer.
