Over 50 years of cancer research, a huge body of information has been accumulated in terms of basic mechanisms underlying malignancy, disease stratification linked to individual outcomes and an expanding set of therapeutic opportunities have developed. This has to be coupled with the advent of genomics and molecular definitions which could lead to intelligent drug design and better application. Cancer among the common diseases is therefore best placed to take advantage of both a greater understanding of the disease and the opportunities of artificial intelligence and numerous data sources to deliver better individualised outcomes. This may result in the conversion of cancer to a chronic disease and as such, is likely to be in the forefront of the debate as to provision of healthcare over the next 20 years.
