It is definitely impossible to say which type of cancer is the most aggressive. It is commonly believed that this is cancer of the pancreas, stomach, liver, gallbladder and sarcoma (cancer of bones, soft tissues). In some patients, the disease proceeds favorably, while in others it is extremely aggressive and unfavorable. Everything is very individual. According to Daria, later we will come to the fact that oncology will become personalized.
