Some. Too often a new treatment sounds like THE ANSWER, but turns out to have minimal effect. How often have we seen this drug or that treatment make headlines and then disappears? Close friend was hoping immunotherapy would fix him but turns out he is not eligible due to the particular cancer he has (very technical) but he is terminal. No more treatments. Cancer is the scariest word that can come out of a physician's mouth aimed at you.
