What is a Cancer Prognosis

What does Prognosis really mean?

To be accurate, the description below is from Google searches.

prog·no·sis (präɡˈnōsəs)

  • the likely course of a disease or ailment – “The disease has a poor prognosis”
  • a forecast of the likely course of a disease or ailment – “It is very difficult to make an accurate prognosis”
  • a forecast of the likely outcome of a situation – “Gloomy prognoses about something”

The Prognosis for cancer is how long you’ll live. Dr Lodi describes how he views Prognosis and how none of us have a contract with Tomorrow. The contract is with Today!

And since Prognosis is a forecast of the likely course of a disease or ailment…again, a forecast of the likely course – nobody knows.
