Latest News about Cancer

Cancer for more than a century continued to be the gravest medical challenge and with the scientific development of treatment and continued research in the clinical aspects of the disease though there have been some rays of hope in regard to the diagnosis and elimination of the disease at the early stage, still now the conclusive and permanent cure of the disease seems to be a distant goal. Modern research has unveiled number of causes and possible curatives procedures for many types of cancer some of which we would introduce here as the latest news about cancer. But before proceeding to provide accounts on the latest news and development in the treatment of cancer let us see some of the basic clinical as well as social facts about cancer.

Rumors and social aspects of cancer

Any life threatening disease had always been likely to cause rumors that are a symbol of social fear and continued helplessness of the society in the face of the disease. Once this life threat was plague or tuberculosis or from the late twentieth century onward it has been AIDS that had been subject to widespread rumor and social fear. Though cancer has never been considered an infectious disease it has also been a subject of social fear and consequent spread of rumor for many decades. Some of the most persistent rumors in regard to the disease include absence of any physical pain or painful symptom is the proof of the absence of the disease, use of modern lifestyle or cosmetics products can raise the chance of cancer, cancer is hereditary, cure for cancer is already there but it had been secretly hidden for the benefit of multi billion dollar medical facilities and drug companies, etc. Rumors though usually are considered to be absolutely baseless, latest news about cancer finds some astonishing truths in regard to the connections between some of these rumors and the clinical research regarding the disease that we are going to discuss here.

Basic Clinical facts about Cancer

When the cells start to divide and grow uncontrollably forming unwanted mass and consequent tumor in any organ of the body and thereby becomes malignant, it is called cancer. How this uncontrollable cell growth reaches other parts of the body and how it the apparently local growth of a tumor suddenly becomes malignant are still shrouded as a mystery in medical science and though several research inputs have unveiled a lot of facts about the spread and growth of the disease, still it remained a challenge to discover the core route of the disease. Cancer is the most challenging disease for the medical practitioner mainly because of the nature of the disease as most variable from one patient to another.

Latest Research on Cancer

Research on cancer has always been most proactive and there has been continuous growth in the research initiatives for finding a conclusive treatment for the disease. Latest news about cancer unveils some of the most astonishing facts in regard to the most advanced treatment and research on cancer. Some of this latest news about cancer those are particularly valuable for the advancement and development of cancer research and treatment are mentioned here below.
