Abstract: Cancer! When you first read that word, what enters your mind? Death, pain, gloom, suffering, agony, etc.? Maybe not, but one thing I am sure that enters your mind is a wary, mysterious doubt and at least a slight sense of fear. That word, probably more than any other, represents more pain, misery, and despair than any other word that has been known to man over the centuries or since its discovery. Although it has existed possibly as long as man, and certainly for the last 2500 years, cancer still has a way of seeming new and mysterious each time a person is told, “You may have cancer.” Throughout this paper, I hope to briefly discuss what is known about this dreaded disease and the existing therapeutic techniques and to discuss my work on another possible treatment for cancer.
