Oncology and cancer therapy

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are over 100 types of cancers that affect humans. Normal cells control production of their growth signals, maintaining homeostasis of cell number and normal tissue architecture. Cancer cells deregulate this control system and therefore there are 6 characteristics describing them: sustaining proliferative signaling, evading growth suppressors, resisting cell death, enabling replicative immortality, inducing angiogenesis, and activating invasion and metastasis.
