do u think there will ever be a cure for cancer?

there all ready is....they just don't want to let the cat out of the bag....it's a money thing

There are already cures for cancer but it is not a medication people are soo brainwashed into thinking that everything has to be a pill in order to heal you which is so not true. My grandmother had breast cancer and her doctor in France provided her with this specific herb she took it for two weeks and she did not have cancer. You should not listen to what the news are informing you on, read out of the USA there are NATURAL CURES for every disease, virus, etc. Medication are used " to patch you up for the time being"

You'll never get a tear from me. So No, there will NEVER be a cure for cancer.

If you say so


The inventor of this new miracle product came up with it for malaria and has already cured 75,000 people with malaria and is curing AIDs in three days and helping people all over the world with cancer.
My Mother is one of them, My mother was told she had acute melanoma leukemia which is cancer of the blood. My wife is her Nurse,
My wife works for the Oncologist. People with this kind of cancer usually last no more then 3 months. The Doctor is amazed and can not believe how well my mother is doing sense we started her on MMS

there probably is but due to politics they wont release that info. If man can fly into to outer space then trust me there is a cure for cancer out there

Just Some Person
There is a cure, at least a preventative cure. Vitamin B-17 is the cure for cancer, just like vitamin C was the cure for scurvy.

Brooke :)
yeah eventually...... im gonna make up a date for it ummm.... 2045

there will be a cure someday >>>>>you can help bring that day closer.........check out this research group http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/

Tee A
Ohh there will be already- but why would the pharmacutical companies release it?

As I'm sure there is a cure for the common cold too-

So much money would be lost if they did!

Very very annoying

Cancer, in a way, is curable, but the treatments are not always effective.

Eventually, there will be a foolproof method to cure cancer.

lil miss badass
someday, yes

Well, Peter's right - your question sure brought the conspiracy theorists and the alternative nutjobs out of the woodwork.

The problem with finding 'a cure for cancer' is that cancer is not a single disease, it's an umbrella term for over 200 different diseases. The difficulty with finding a cure is that different cancers are caused by different things, so no one strategy can prevent them They all respond to different treatments so no one treatment can cure them, so there isn't a magic bullet that cures all cancers and there never will be.

There is no guaranteed cure for any cancer yet, but quite a few cancers CAN already be cured: seven out of ten children are cured of cancer; testicular cancer, Hodgkin's disease, and many cases of leukaemia can all be cured in adults with chemotherapy, most skin cancers are cured with surgery and many cases of thyroid cancer and cancer of the larynx are cured with radiotherapy.

Many other types of cancer are also cured if they are found early enough.

The suggestion that there's too much money being made from cancer for researchers to bother finding a cure is nonsense, as is any suggestion that a cure exists but is kept secret for reasons of profit. The cancer cure conspiracy theory is a sort of game played by people who've never had , studied or been close to cancer.

If there were some secret cure, being kept from us because cancer's such a money-spinner, many hundreds of people at least would have had to be cured by it in order to prove it worked. A scientist wouldn't just look up from the experiments s/he was doing and say 'Hey, I've found it - the cure for cancer!' It would have been tried, successfully, on thousands of people. Why the silence from them, and from their delighted friends and families?

And any drug company discovering a cure would make far more money than they can have dreamed of making up till now – fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams.

If there were a 'secret cure', doctors, scientists, researchers etc would be watching their relatives die and dying themselves rather than revealing the secret - they and their families develop cancer at the same rate as the rest of the population.

Every medical professional in the whole world would have agreed to keep existence of a cure secret. Every single one. One blabbermouth, one disgruntled researcher or sacked nurse and the whole conspiracy’s blown. Newspapers and other media wouldn't have got a sniff of it. Likely? -and is it likely that these people, who went into medicine to help people, would be conspiring to kill them? If they wanted to make a fortune, medicine was a very poor choice of career.

I live in the UK. Our health care, including our cancer treatments, are paid for by the state. Cancer treatments cost the government billions, yet our treatments are the same as in the US, whence most of these conspiracy theories originate. If there were cheaper, once-and -for-all cures, BELIEVE ME the government would be paying for them rather than expensive conventional treatments. As it is I may be back at any time for more expensive treatment. And our doctors are salaried - if the cancer rate doubled, they wouldn't make one extra penny.

So you see, the suggestion someone has made here that cancer is cured simply and quickly outside the US is pure crap.

And someone's mentioned 'B17'. There's no such vitamin, it was invented to give respectability to Laetrile, a commercial preparation of apricot kernels peddled as a cancer prevention and cure. It's one of the few 'alternative' treatments that has been thoroughly tested - and it has been found to be completely ineffective. Dangerous too - it contains cyanide.

Be sure of one thing - none of the people telling you about conspiracies and miracle cures has any experience of or training in cancer whatsoever.

So, in answer to your question - there'll never be a Eureka moment when a single substance or procedure is discovered that will reverse all types of cancer. But there will continue to be steady progress - a new and more effective treatment, a way to reverse a particular cancer etc.

Cancer is simply body tissue that is stuck in the 'multiply yourself' mode.

The tricky bit is defining a cure that only works on the cancer tissue and leaves the rest of your body alone.

Chemo and Radiotherapy can be effective, but its got to be caught in time.

If you could screen every human being, every day, early detection rates would be very very high, treatment cheap and a cure effective.

Someone somewhere I bet is working on a pill that triggers a unique physiological response that means 'you've probably got cancer - get it checked now!'

This pill won't be cheap

But it will in effect be a 'cure' - only for those who have the means to pay for it...

There probably already is a cure for cancer. It will never be released though, because the doctors and scientists who are working to find a cure will not get paid anymore.

I think there will be one day. Maybe not a 'cure' but much better ways of treating/preventing the disease.

Peter M
I guess it was predictable, but hoo boy! Did your question ever bring the conspiracy nut cases out of their cages! Or maybe it was just the sum going down? A full moon? Anyway, there is no conspiracy to keep a known cure off the market and away from suffering patients. Anyone with a loved one with cancer or who has lost someone to cancer takes these comments as very hurtful insults. Insults to our intelligence as it should be to anyone with a modicum of intelligence. A conspiracy of literally hundreds of thousands of medical professionals to keep silent about the "cure"? Utter nonsense!

I cannot bring myself to use the word "never", but if a cure is found it is way off in the future and will have to handle the many hundreds of types of cancer - every one of them a separate and distinct disease.

I really think the best we can hope for in the near future is improved understanding of the disease(s) and better methods of treatment for them. Things do get better every day but there is just so far to go still. The cancer I have would have killed my father or grandfather by now (I've been treated for prostate cancer since 2005), so there is very real evidence that cancer research is paying off. I intend to keep on supporting cancer research as best I can while trying to ignore the conspiracy wackos and the quacks with their quack "cures" and I believe most people with good sense will do the same.

If there was a cure for cancer, then the pharmaceutical companies would try to destroy it. Think of all the money they'd lose! They are in the business of keeping people sick and on medication for as long as possible, not curing them. They don't even like to release better medications until the patents have expired on the existing ones!

Doctors, hospitals and scientists would also lose money.

There have been many supposed cures for cancer, now and in the past, that have been suppressed for this reason. I've seen this from personal experience with both my own health, and that of others close to me. If you ever get really sick, do not trust the medical system but do as much research as you can on your own.
