Sometimes aggressive healthcare can lead a patient down a path where their health goes through an upward and downward spiral because of too much care they might be receiving. Patients who are treated with aggressive care are also most likely to develop a variety of side effects or complications from the care which can lead to more pain or they might experience medical errors that come from uncoordinated care such as doctors prescribing drugs that could duplicate or interfere with other drugs(consumer report,2008). This kind of care offers little to no benefit to the patients but just more suffering. An analysis of 28,000 patients younger than 65 with advanced tumors from 2007-2014 found that approximately three-fourths received aggressive care within their last 30 days of life and one-third of patients of all the tumor types investigated died in the hospital, according to findings of the American Society of Clinical Oncology(ASCO,2016).This study just shows that it is not guaranteed that aggressive care will significantly extend a patients life expectancy but it will certainly make the process of dying more painful for the patients involved. Too much care at the end of life provided to these patients caused these patients cancers to deteriorate and

Three main factors to this trend in cancer is frequent exposure to environmental carcinogens, inheritance of cancer genes and having a weak immune system.
