One of the major problems with treating cancer is that it is detected too late. Early lesions and transitions often occur 10–15 years prior to our ability to detect the disease by palpation or imaging. By the time many cancers are detected they have long since acquired the ability to generate micrometastases or populations of tumor cells that can develop drug resistance.
