Cancer

These days, cancer is a widespread disease that affects almost everyone in Switzerland: either because they suffer the disease themselves, or because their friends or family members develop cancer. Cancer is often a very serious illness which not only impacts the cancer sufferer but also places great strain on all those around them

Thanks to modern cancer therapies, many tumours can now be successfully treated or at least enable patients to live longer and have a better quality of life. Early detection of cancer is crucial as it increases the chances of a successful treatment.
