We didnt even know what cancer was forty years ago.
The origin of the word cancer is credited to the Greek physician Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.), considered the "Father of Medicine." Hippocrates used the terms carcinos and carcinoma to describe non-ulcer forming and ulcer-forming tumors. In Greek these words refer to a crab, most likely applied to the disease because the finger-like spreading projections from a cancer called to mind the shape of a crab. Carcinoma is the most common type of cancer.

Just a little longer than 40 years ago ;)

It is probably that we have discovered the causes in the last half century.

But you are correct in that we are curing deseases that we didn't know about 40 or so years ago.I just hope that whatever I am going to die from will be curable before it's too late for me :D

What I am talking about is the bulk of the research done is based on treating symptems and not making cures.
If you cure someone they stop taking the drugs, but if you can just make them live longer then you have a captive market :(
