A Biopsy is the removal of a small amount of tissue or sample of cell from the body for examination under a microscope by a pathologist and can also be analyzed chemically. Other test like imaging are helpful in detecting area of abnormality, they can’t differentiate between Cancer cell and normal cell, only Biopsy perform definitive diagnosis of Cancer. The procedure of removing entire organ is called as excisional Biopsy and procedure of removing portion of abnormal tissue without attempting to remove the entire lesion or tissue is called as incisional Biopsy or core Biopsy. In some Biopsies, tumor samples are removed though a thin needle or through an endoscope. When the Cancer is diagnosed, a variety of Biopsy technique can be applied.

Radiation therapy uses high energy particle or radiation or waves such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, protons to destroy or shrink Cancer cell. When compared to normal cell, the Cancer cells grow and divide faster, radiation works by making small breaks in the DNA inside the cells. Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged by radiation stops dividing or die. The normal cell present nearby Cancer cells can also be affected by radiation, leading to side effects. Radiation therapy may be use alone or in combination with surgery Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy. The radiation can be given in 3 ways depending upon the type of Cancer and location. Types of radiation are external radiation, internal radiation, systemic radiation and others.

Targeted Cancer therapies are drugs or medication that prevent the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with molecular target that are involved. Targeted therapies also called as Molecularly targeted cancer therapies, Molecularly targeted drugs. Chemotherapy and Targeted therapies differs in several ways: the Targeted therapies act on the specific Molecular target and block tumor cell proliferation whereas Chemotherapy acts on rapidly dividing normal and Cancer cell and kill cell. Molecular targeted therapies are currently focusing on anticancer drug development and they are the cornerstone of precision Medicine to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases.
Precision medicine or personalized medicine is an approach to individual care for selecting treatment that are helpful to the patients based on a genetic understanding of their disease. Depending upon the type of cancer, its size and proliferation, combination of Treatment surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy and Immunotherapy may vary. But in precision medicine, information about genetic changes in the tumor can be helping to decide the Treatment.

Immunotherapy is a Cancer Treatment that uses immune system to fight against the diseases like cancer. Immunotherapy can be done by stimulating own immune system to attack Cancer cells and giving immune system components like man-made immune system protein. So Immunotherapy sometimes called as Biologic therapy or Biotherapy. Cancer cells have the ability to hide from the immune system, so Immunotherapies can target the Cancer cells or boost immune system, so it is easier for the immune system to destroy them.

Cell Therapy or Cytotherapy in which administration of living cell in individual for the treatment of a disease. Cell therapy is a technology that relies on replacing diseased cells with healthy ones. The cells can be taken from same individual or another individual, stem cells such as bone marrow or induced pluripotent stem cells, skin fibroblasts or adipocytes. Some form of Cell Therapy are Whole blood transfusions, packed red cell transfusions, platelet transfusions, bone marrow transplants, and organ transplants.
Gene therapy is the Therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid into a patient’s cells as a drug to modify the expression of an individual genes or repair abnormal genes. Gene therapy uses DNA that encodes a therapeutic, functional gene to replace a mutated gene. The polymer molecule is packaged within a vector and it act as a special carrier.
