Cancer – a global health problem and the second leading cause of death worldwide today. The word itself has the ability of sending shivers up and down the spine. A devastating disease that touches the lives of many, from those that have the disease to those who witness first-hand the suffering it causes their loved ones. Over the decades due to the rise in new cancer diagnoses, cancer research has magnified exponentially. Researchers are eager to make headway on tackling this disease and all of its facets head on. A cure for cancer is the aim, but difficult to fulfil, as cancer itself is complex — a group of many diseases, where genetic, environmental and behavioural factors all have a role to play in its diagnosis.
