Abstract:
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world (only second to heart disease in developed countries). It is a multifactorial disease that is characterised by the unregulated growth of the atypical forms of the body’s own cells and intrusion and spread of these cells from the primary site to other areas in the body. It is rare for cancer to cause death by the functional failure of the primary organ affected and the clinical consequences of cancer are indirect relating to the bulk of the tumour or the invasion of tissues both local and distant.
