No, not all cancers are lethal. Those people generally have benign tumors.

If left untreated, yes, many or mostcancers can be fatal eventually. With medical intervention, many cancers can currently be treated and/or cured. Sadly, not all cancers are treatable or curable yet, so there are still some types that are pretty much fatal all of the time.
