Coming from Irish and Scotish backgrounds, my family has a long history of skin cancers (My father has had fourteen melonamas, none that were caught too late). I was just thinking about how he always says that melonoma is one of the deadliest cancers, and thinking “what makes it so deadly?”
When does the cancer go from curable to terminable. For instance, what happens in the body to make the cancer beyond cure? Is it that the cells get in the blood stream and spread all over the body?
How does this feel? How would one notice it if they failed to see the external signs? How long does one usually have to live if they have made it to the point where they can feel it? What sort of medical procedures are done?
Do certain cancers kill faster than others? Are there people that live for a long time with cancers that are incurable?
