Cancer Biology

Cancer is a disease in which some of the body’s cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. Cancer begins when genetic changes interfere with this orderly process. These cells may form a mass called a tumour. A tumour can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumour is malignant, meaning it can grow and spread to other parts of the body. A benign tumour means the tumour can grow but will not spread. Different types of cancer are Carcinomas which include prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer, Sarcomas, Leukemias and Lymphomas.

Why does I3T focus on this: I3T is having an Advanced Diagnostic Center. Clinical trials can help researchers find new ways to prevent and detect cancer, and they can also help improve the quality of life for patients during and after treatment.
