Many people believe that there will be a single drug or treatment found by scientists that will cure all kinds of cancer. This is, unfortunately, a quite widespread misconception regarding cancer research. Due to the complexity of the disease, the future of cancer treatment lies in a more targeted and personalised approach. Combined knowledge about the biology of cancer and combined effort from physicians and scientists will be needed to find the best way to treat cancer in the future.
