Cancer is a wound that never heals. This is suggested by the data produced after several years of cancer research and therapeutic interventions done worldwide. There is a strong similarity between Newton’s third law and therapeutic behavior of tumor. According to Newton’s third law “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. In cancer therapeutics, tumor exerts strong pro-tumor response against applied treatment and imposes therapeutic resistance, one of the major problems seen in preclinical and clinical studies. There is an urgent need to understand the tumor biology of therapy resistant tumors following the therapy. Here, we have discussed the problem and provided possible path for future studies to treat cancer.
