This article fails to address the point that an early diagonisis can, in fact, extend "real" survival time, since it also implies that treatment is started earlier, which can often extend survival time. The article currently implies that the moment of death is the same regardless of the onset of treatment (itself dependent upon the time of the diagnosis)! 129.67.14.209 (talk) 13:35, 27 July 2014 (UTC)psychologist&statistician
