Understanding cell death helps understand how dead tumor cells leave your body. It has been noticed in several studies that a cancer tumor can increase in size during cancer treatments, this is typically due to the inflammation that occurs around the tumor area.
The cells of a multicellular organism are members of a highly organized community. Every day billions of cells die in our bodies and undergo Apoptosis. Apoptosis is a multi-step, multi-pathway cell-death program that is inherent in every cell of the body
The removal of dying cells by phagocytes occurs in an orderly manner without eliciting an inflammatory response.
Although cancer comprises at least 100 different diseases, all cancer cells share one important characteristic: they are abnormal cells in which the processes regulating normal cell division are disrupted. Cell Biology and Cancer
The CC Treatment is designed to kill cancer cells slowly. As cancer cells are slowly dying, the immune system “attacks” them, which can create temporary inflammation or swelling.
Cytokinetics is the fundamental physiology of cancer medicine. Its scope is so large that to merely introduce its basic concepts, laboratory foundations, theoretic underpinnings, clinical relevance, and prospects for future development is a life long study. This is a rapidly evolving field, both conceptually and technically, that touches all aspects of experimental and practical oncology in cancer. I true definition of tumor size and what it means during treatment is very difficult to evaluate and can very by specialist. Holland-Frei Cancer Medicine. 5th edition – Cytokinetics
