Research the particular type of cancer you chose being sure to address the following questions: Which part of the body is affected? What are some warning signs? Are there any treatments? Approximately how many people are affected with this type of cancer? Are certain people more at risk than others? Is it more prevalent in certain areas of the world?
In addition, what are your thoughts about cancer in general? Does it seem that there are more cases of it in today’s society? If so, why might this be the case? Do you think human-made or natural compounds are more responsible for causing cancers? Do you have any personal experience of knowing someone with cancer? Would you like to share your personal experiences with cancer?
