Cancer Cable?

a: Cancer ~
b: cable television

What: "Incoming American Society of Oncology (ASCO) President George Sledge, MD was quoted at the 2010 annual ASCO meeting saying that "cancer is like cable television. Thirty years ago you had three channels. Now you have 500." It's an interesting--and accurate--analogy. We now know that cancer is not a single disease but rather a collection of many types of the disease."
