There are various causes for the development of cancer. Life style and nutrition play a key role here, but other factors that cannot be influenced personally, such as exposure to environmental toxins, genetic predisposition or chronic inflammation, can also be responsible for the development of cancer.
Cancer can be treated successfully if it is detected early. The ideal is if it can be completely removed surgically before it grows invasively and forms metastases. As soon as metastases have formed, the disease is considered non-curable with orthodox medicine. Therapies are then only aimed at improving the quality of life and extending life. Approximately 50% of the tumour diseases are fatal, which means that the proportion of tumours not detected in time is quite high.
The disease cancer in itself is not the real problem, but late detection of the cancer.
