概要：Everyone will be touched by cancer. If we are lucky enough to avoid cancer in our own life, we will still be close to people who have cancer, and many will not survive the disease. Cancer is not one disease, but multiple diseases, each with its unique characteristics and prognosis. There are numerous causes of cancer, but a more limited number of pathways that must be activated or repressed for the tumor cells to survive and grow. The development of cancer is commonly a prolonged process, arising from the accumulation of multiple mutations and genomic rearrangements over many years before the disease is manifested. These genetic changes cause activation of oncogenes, or loss of tumor suppressor genes. Aberrations in many other pathways can predispose individuals to cancer by increasing the frequency of mutations.
