I don’t think we will ever be able to stop people getting cancer in the first place but I think our treatments will advance so less people die from cancer.

Shona is the expert, but from what I’ve heard there are so many different kinds of cancers and ways of getting cancer that it’s highly improbable to find a cure for all of them.

This is entirely out of my area of research/science, I’m afraid. I really don’t have any training or background in medical science so won’t expose my ignorance by trying to answer. Sorry!

In cell division sometimes mistakes happen but these cells usually die. If these abnormal cells don’t die but continue to grow and divide into more abnormal then this can be cancer.
A person is more likely to develop certain cancerous cells if they smoke, drink a lot of alcohol, if they work with dangerous substances and chemicals, if they are exposed to the sun a lot without bsun protection, if they care older, some virusesvand bacterias can increase the likelihood of developing cancer
