Cancer

Modern medicine sees cancer as a disease in which malignant tissue formation occurs. The disruption of the cell cycle and cell death is present in all very different forms. Cancer refers to diseases in which metastasis formation is present or possible. The most important current types of treatment are surgical removal of tissue, radiotherapy, medical treatment and hyperthermic or electrical therapies. New approaches look at viral or vaccination therapies.
