Anti Cancer Medication:


Cancer is the term we give to a huge group of diseases that differ in type and position but have one-thing in common i.e. abnormal cells growing out of control that had potential to spread and invade into another part of the body. They form a subset of neoplasm. A neoplasm or tumor is a collection of cells that have undergone unfettered growth and will often form a mass or lump but may be disseminated diffusely.

Under normal conditions, the number and growth of all our cells is a highly controlled mechanism. However, when the organize signals in one of these cells goes wrong, and its life cycle becomes troubled, it divides and divides. It continues multiplying hysterically, and the effect of this accumulation of abnormal cells is a mass of cells called a "cancer"

The drugs used to treat cancer are Anti-cancer drugs, which are also called anti-neoplastic agents or chemotherapeutic agents. They take action upon rapidly dividing cancer cells and annihilate them. They can be used single-handedly (single-drug therapy) or several at once (combination therapy).
