The Genetics of Cancer
Cancer is the term used to describe an incredibly complex group of diseases, caused by changes to the genes in one cell or a group of cells. These genetic alternations disrupt the normal functioning of the cell/s giving rise to several phenotypic changes or “hallmarks” that distinguish them from “healthy” cells in the body.
