We at Gary A. Zucker & Associates, P.C. handle many types of cancer cases. Cancer includes any of more than 100 diseases characterized by excessive, uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that invade and destroy other tissues. Survival rates depend on the type of cancer and the timeliness of diagnosis. Many, but not all, cancers have a high cure rate when diagnosed early and a very low cure rate when diagnosed late. Unfortunately, some cancers have a low cure rate even when detected at the earliest possible time. Examples of cancers that are highly curable when caught and treated early and rarely curable when the diagnosis or proper treatment is delayed are melanoma, colon cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, and testicular cancer.
