Stages of Cancer Development follows the evolution of cancer from a single genetically altered cell, through the stages of hyperplasia (uncontrolled cell division), dysplasia (genetic changes that lead to an excess of cells in the affected region), carcinoma in situ (additional changes that make cells appear abnormal and allow them to spread over a larger region, affecting cell function), to full-blown cancer (focusing on malignant tumors that have the ability to invade surrounding tissues and spread throughout the body). This book presents a complex topic in a clear and approachable manner, making it an invaluable guide for student research.
