      There's a saying - you can lie with statistics. My ex- proved that - in the Army he was assigned to Washington DC to compile stats, which he did and he slanted everything so the poobahs could get what they wanted.

      Besides. Let's face it. They aren't canvasing every living being who has had cancer, so it's a random survey of a small group of people. Many things can affect the outcome - climate, genetics, diet....

      Live your life and XXX the numbers!

      Don't look at the odds until you have made up your mind to beat them. Then place your bet. My Dr. said I had a 1 in 100 chance of being cancer-free on April 1 2018. He chickened out and got a cushy research grant and quit the practice last year.

      I agree with all the comments above about statistics, but my best advice is to "Prepare for the worst, and then work for and hope for the best."

      I'm another Stage IV survivor of an aggressive cancer, and I have no evidence of disease today.
