I have a character that is about thirty-five years old in 1962. She is healthy in all things and happily married since 1945. However, she gets cancer.

What is a cancer of that time that was fatal (could any cancer be treated at the time?) and how long did it take to kill? What were the symptoms and such not?

Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide!

I would say Google it.

Here's what I found in a couple of minutes: Sorry, but I didn't really read over them to see if they're what you're looking for. Hope it helps :)

Superhero Profile:

Balec can erase the memories of others. He has the powers and talents of a gorilla, but only for five minutes at a time. Balec is protected by an adamantium-like hide and can transform any sloth into air, and can transform kevlar into ice. Balec has been known to absorb the damage from energy-based attacks and redirect it against any combatant in sight. He can tunnel through solid plastic, but doing so drains his endurance for one hour. Balec is able to view distant locations with his mind.
He can force creatures to freeze in place and can become tiny. Sadly, Balec becomes ugly in the presence of silver, and struggles with being unable to smell.
