Cancer also known as a malignant tumor or malignant neoplasm, is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. Possible signs and symptoms include: a new lump, abnormal bleeding, a prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements, among others. While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may also occur due to other issues. There are over 100 different known cancers that affect humans. Cancer stem cells are a minor population of tumor cells that possess the stem cell property of self-renewal. In addition, dysregulation of stem cell self-renewal is a likely requirement for the development of cancer. There are many on-going research and labs are targeting on the cancer stem cells therapy future. As it will bring the more fast development in the field of cancer research with short span of time. Open access articles related to cancer stem cells will help the research scientist to deal with the new research and progress the tenure too. The different types of manuscript with cancer stem cells will help the different therapeutic approach to the society and scientific research field.
