New Research Finds Those With Cancer Living Longer

Scientists still haven't found a cure for cancer, but new research suggests they're winning more battles. ABC News reports a cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence. A new study finds nearly half of all newly diagnosed cancer patients can expect to live for at least another decade. Scientists at Cancer Research UK found women with breast cancer now have a 78% chance of surviving at least a decade, compared to only 40% some 40 years ago. Ten-year survival rates for men with testicular cancer have jumped from 69% to 98%. But researchers caution the outlook for some patients remains bleak, with just 1% of pancreatic cancer patients surviving 10 years.
