Caner is one of our worst enemies. It kills millions of people every year and we have very ineffective ways of dealing with the monstrosity. When it really comes down to it cancer is only needless cells in our body. These cells form tumors inside of us and eventually cause health risks. We have no way to effective dispose of these cells without causing harm to ourselves in most cases. The usage of nanotechnology for cancer treatment offers some exciting possibilities. This includes the possibility of destroying cancer tumors with minor damage to tissue and organs. We could also use this technology for the detection and elimination of cancer cells before they even form tumors.
How would the use of nanotechnology accomplish this?
There are a few ways that nanotechnology can help us accomplish this goal. The method that scientists today think has the most promising success is the use of nanobots. Nanobots are robots but extremely small. One day scientists believe that we can program these robots to go through the body without causing harm and destroying all of the cancer cells in out body even before they become harmful to us. Another form of treatment may be a for of therapy similar to chemotherapy but have nano-materials within the solution formulated to kill cancer cells. Even today they are trying to improve chemotherapy using nanotechnology but they have not found any breakthroughs yet.
