How'd that work out for Steve Jobs?
The reason he died was his own stubbornness. After they found the cancer he waited 9 months against all medical advice from the greatest minds money could buy believing that he could fix it through herbal remedies and purging. It was only after all that failed that he went for the surgery but by then it was too late it had already spread to his liver and he then needed a liver transplant. It's all documented in his biography.
I'm pretty confident that had he got the tumour removed immediately he would still be alive to this day.
