Is Cancer on the rise?

Today, a friend was distressed after his classmate succumbed to cancer. My friend had recently crossed 25. So his classmate is of the same age too. It is too young an age to bid goodbye to life. Since this is the second case of cancer among his classmates, my friend was scared. Not only my friend, everyone who knew these two souls are scared.

Is cancer on the rise? It is the question we asked each other.

Has the field of medicine has advanced resulting in earlier detection of these ailments?

Is it the environmental effect?

We don’t have any answers. Do you?
