Due to: Rising population|Higher pricing costs|Modern technology| Age longevity
From 2010 to 2020 over the next decade the jump in cost will be near 30% rise. This stemming first from the rising population. More population creates more cases of cancer statistically and historically.
Second there is inflation and rising costs of health care as well as technological advances and experimental treatments and clinical trials that work for many.
Finally not only do we have a surge in population but people are simply living longer. The average age not long ago was 69 then 72 then 76.
Cancer insurance is now going to become the standard to the industry. If you do not have coverage you might be the only one. Get covered today and realize that for starting average cost is about less than a dollar a day. Using I cant afford it is no longer with affordable cancer insurance or critical illness insurance.
