I would guess it is be cause more people die per year of lung cancer than pca, more deadly and more understood. If they see a cluster of lung cancer cells, they know across the spectrum of cells,statistically it is a much more aggressive disease than pca. Understood in the since, more predictable. i doubt there is little AS or debate about
levels of differentiation, with lung cancer as well as pancreatic, ovarian and such. Lets face it Pca is nasty, if it gets nasty, as is skin cancer and testicular. but they are in a different ball park than Pca as a whole. the true comparison is breast vs Pca, whose mortality statistics are pretty much the same. More money and attention goes to breast cancer than Pca. Which actually is fine with me, as I still
open doors for women, even when/ if they sneer at me for doing it. I actually like and take rejection very well……… " It smells like Victory"
