"Cancer" is the term we give to a large group of diseases that vary in type and location but have one thing in common: abnormal cells growing out of control. Under normal circumstances the number and growth of all our cells is a highly controlled mechanism. But when the control signals in one of these cells goes wrong, and its life cycle becomes disturbed, it divides and divides. It continues multiplying uncontrollably, and the result of this accumulation of abnormal cells is a mass of cells called a "cancer". The drugs used to treat cancer are Anti cancer drugs, when we hear about Anticancer drugs, most of us immediately think of chemotherapy. So there is now a whole range of different cancer drug treatments as cancer treatment options on offer to patients which are not chemotherapy and so do not act indiscriminately against rapidly dividing cells, but are instead purpose built, tailor made and ocused, targeted, with purpose ranging from hormone therapies to substances that strengthen the bones (bisphosphonates) to drugs that work with the immune system. Hormone Therapies, Steroids, The latest anti-cancer drugs are called Biologics.
