Cancer has been the enemy of everyone and a friend to none. The idea of it is very dreadful due to plenty of reasons. One, not everyone can survive cancer. Second, if you are fortunate to survive the first stages of chronic diseases, it has a high chance of remission. Third, there is no proper cure for cancer. It has always been prevention or managing the symptoms. However, while we are running away from this idea, it is still best to lower our chances of acquiring this illness.
