Success Obtained In Fight Against Cancer


More and more people diagnosed with tumors in Europe can cured. At the same time, their longevity was not affected.

The number of patients cured from cancer is in continuous rising in Europe. This fact is proved by the statistics gathered and analyzed by the European Oncological Organization. They say that the chances for the treatment of the disease were mostly increased in patients with lung cancer, stomach cancer and cancer of the intestines.

Thus, during the last decade of the 20th century, the number of people cured from pulmonary cancer had risen from 6 to 8 percent, those cured from stomach cancer – from 15 to 18 percent and the percentage of the ones cured from cancer of intestines had increased from 42 to 49 percent. It is worth mentioning that the expected longevity in these patients was the same as the longevity in other people.

Researchers analyzed the histories of the disease in more than 13.5 million people who were diagnosed cancer in the period betweem 1978 and 2002. However, scientists have noticed the big diversity of statistical data in different countries. The worst is in Poland, where the number of cured patients is only 21 percent among men and 38 percent among women. One of the leading countries in Europe for the number of cured men is Iceland (47 per cent) and for cured women – France and Finland (59 per cent).
