The parallel development of life science and cancer treatment after the introduction of the cell theory in 1838 can be briefly summarized as shown in Fig. 11.1. In the mid-1850s, cancer entered the field of science after being designated as neoplasm, which is defined as a new mass of cells created from the division of tumor cells.
