Introduction and Perspective
Cancer is the general term for a series of neoplastic (Gr. neos new, plasma formation) diseases that are characterized by changes in a cell leading to abnormal (unordered and uncontrolled) cellular proliferation. Cancer is commonly encountered in all animals except the lower forms (see Chapter 9), and even plants develop growths that resemble cancer. Cancer is well known in all human populations and has probably been with us from the beginning of time. Indeed some fossilized dinosaur bones have been located that seem to reflect damage attributable to cancer.
