Is there a cure for cancer?

Yes and no. There are many promising outcomes that have come about because of medical breakthroughs in recent decades. One of the most encouraging is intravenous vitamin C therapy, which research suggests can have incredible healing properties for cancer patients above the level that any chemotherapy drug achieves.

Cancer's a complicated disease, so it still has an effective treatment rate of about 55%. And despite medical advances and massive advancements in cancer research, the cancer survival rates have not improved too much.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in developed countries, with an estimated 1.7 million people dying of it every year. There are many types of cancer including Lung Cancer, Brain Tumors, and Breast Cancer.

However, there is hope - there are treatments available for cancer survivors so that they can live a healthy life again.  There are treatments that can help to shrink cancerous tumours, but there's not really one cure. And while some cases of cancer affect only a minor part of the body and are very easy to treat, others have the potential to metastasize and spread throughout the entire body. For this reason, it's always important for doctors to evaluate whether treatment will be successful before patients opt for surgery or chemotherapy.

To assess a patient's best course of action in terms of using scientifically-backed treatments that have been demonstrated in clinical trials, surgeons can use what is known as "evidence-based medicine. “This process helps physicians determine which type of medical care is likely going to produce better outcomes for their patients.
