Cancer Myths

• Cancer is always fatal

This is not true. Over the years, as scientists scientists understand cancer better there have been vast improvements in treatments, and along with this recovery rates continue to improve. Many forms of cancer, depending on when they’re caught, are treatable and curable. Some forms of cancer are even curable at advanced stages.

• Cancer is contagious

No – You cannot catch cancer from another person. Not through contact or secretions or anything in the air. Cancer is not contagious. Some infections such as sexually transmitted diseases, can cause cancers in the cervix and the liver but the cancer itself is not contagious.

• Cancer surgery causes cancer to spread

Advances in equipment used during surgery and more detailed imaging tests have helped make this risk very low
