(right) (because the name of disease appears in plural form.) In the above-mentioned sentences, we see that use of an article before the name of a disease is wrong. Because if any disease name appears singular we never use the article ‘the’ but if in case there comes any name of the disease in plural form there we use the article ‘the’.

He has died of cancer. However, if want to say that the particular person or an animal is suffering
