There are many theories regarding what possibly causes cancer and research is ongoing in this field. Cancer is not infectious and it does not spread from one person to another. Children tolerate treatment better than adults in general and their cure rates are also much better. Approximately 7 out of 10 children can be cured from cancer, if diagnosed early and Leukemia is the commonest cancer in children followed by lymphomas & brain tumor.”
