Today there are hordes of super-specialist doctors and hospitals for cancer treatment. The underlining fact of their claim to specialization in cancer treatment lies in the cure rate i.e. the number of patients treated by them to the number of patients cured after the treatment. A high cure rate will very well reassure the patients of their being getting cured after the treatment and living a healthy life thereafter. If the cure rates are abysmally low, then the claim to treatment itself sounds hollow. During the very first visit, the patients and their relatives should be advised about the cure rates. On the contrary, they are given assurances that the doctors treating them are most competent and the technology offered by the hospital is the best available.
