    Do you have more cancer cases in your area now than several years ago?

      Good question. I do know that folks did not speak about it so much in the past, as the survival rates were not good. Treatment centers were fewer and it was not featured on prime time TV, in every other commercial advertisement, etc. Now that we expose almost all of ourselves on the web, I think that there is simply more of it being talked about. Per capita rates may indeed be rising, but the media does tend to skew our perception.

      I agree, in the past it wasn't talked about, survival rates were dismal, and the whole subject was rather taboo. Nowdays, with the much higher survival rate and many people continuing to live, work, out in the public eye AND talking about it we are so much more aware of who those people are. In my area the cancer rate is higher than average, a recognized "hotspot". Seems like everyone has someone in their family who has been stricken.

      In the county I live in, we have the highest rate of breast cancer in Illinois. I have done research on it and I just don't understand why.
      I do think because more people are surviving and talking about it, that we are heading about more cases. The taboo subject of cancer has loosened up over the years. And thanks to the media, we hear about famous people getting cancer too.
