Sadly even tho medicine has gone a long way, there are countless of diseases, viruses and conditions that just can't be cured today. You can almost imagine how the "future" will be, this video for example, picture it 50 years from now and how people look back at how we treated cancer. It's not a pretty sight that's for sure. Trained doctors will usually do what's best for the patient at the given time.
