    Public awareness and early detection, combined with aggressive treatment - that's the ticket!

    Studies: Cancer Can Spread Undetected, Before Tumor Develops
    December 15, 2016 - Research has found that cancer cells can spread unseen, before a tumor develops, and leave a ticking time bomb in the body. But the scientists who made the discovery say it soon may be possible for doctors to target these "silent" cancer cells and kill them before they can kill the patient.

    It would be interesting to see this pushed out across different groups in the U.S.

    But, it does not surprise me. The U.S. isn't stupid.

    It's just tough to see us spend so much relative to others.

    Singapore seems to do a good job.

    One is much more likely to get early detection and treatment under universal care.
    The US mostly treats rather than diagnose with preventive care.
