Have a look at how we are constantly developing ways to fight this battle.
Over the past century, researchers from all over the world have made consistent progress in the fight against cancer. Much of this research has been funded by charity and government research grants. That money has supported some of the most important scientific work in cancer, translating into new medications and other therapies, along with information on how to prevent the disease.
Previously thought to only affect high-income countries, we now know that cancer is shifting to be a global disease.
Early detection of cancer improves the chances of a cure, but this is not without controversy.

Research accelerates the advancement of treatment and provides patients with better survival odds and improved quality of life.
The majority of cancer research is conducted in the West, which has led to better treatments for Caucasian patients. Cancer Research Malaysia ensures that research is also conducted for Asians. So get on board — you can make a difference.
