Here is the moral dilemma of our healthcare era. How do we pay for the rising cost of cancer?The cost of treating cancer in the United States almost doubled between 1987 and 2005. This could be due to many reasons: we detect cancer earlier, we have more modalities to treat these cancers, people are living longer, etc. As more and more drugs are invented to keep us around longer, when will we hit the tipping point where we realize that we can't afford it anymore? Maybe this is not a moral dilemma but a fiscal survival dilemma. Your thoughts?
