Some risk factors that cause cancer also recognized during the 19th and 20th centuries. Hope first came through the treatment of leukemia in 1970, after which there was no looking back. In the next few decades, medical science is rapidly evolving in the region and increase the survival rate of leukemia by about 70 percent.
