Cancer is not a single disease but rather a collection of over 200 illnesses which share a combination of underlying environmental and genetic causes.
This means that cancer is one of the most complicated diseases to manage and cure. It is therefore great news to hear that in 2021 it is forecast that localized/early detected breast cancer five-year survival rates will be approaching 100%.
