Carcinogenesis is the slow and steady process that results in cancerous cells. These cells are a generally benign tumour which becomes malignant after attaining certain properties and hence starts spreading. The properties of the malignant and the benign tumours are entirely different. Malignant tumours are characterized by genome instability, these cells shoes tumour heterogeneity with multiple sub clones. These have varying levels of DNA repair enzymes. Expose to various different kinds of carcinogens forms the major reason for cancer development. There are various different mechanisms that are affected and result in carcinogenesis. Extensive research has been carried out in this field and ample of papers has been published in the same topic. In order to help the scientific community, scientists summaries all the recent advancements and findings in a single paper know as review articles. These kinds of articles are helpful in getting to know about the new and the recent updates.
