This is particularly important if there is a recurrence of any of the seven danger signs. Moreover, if there is any doubt, one should revisit his family doctor, to make doubly sure. There are no privileged people who are exempt from the danger ol cancer, lor this disease is often no respecter of age. Regardless of previous good health, a high standard of living, excellent fooel and good shelter, as well as no signs of hereditary illnesses, cancer still assaults and kills tens of thousands of new victims each year.
