Health Authorities should make compulsory for oncologists to disclose what is the cure rate of each type and stage of cancer in past 20 to 30 years based on actual data & track record, so that patients can make informed decisions on chemotherapy and other mainstream treatments, which are not only costly, torturous but probably has very low success cure rate for advanced cancers.

This whole cancer industry has been much monopolized by a few big pharmaceutical firms that likely care much more for their profits and lock-in power to prolong high profits' structure than curing patients in cost effective and efficient way. The financial interests are opposed.
