On February 4th was World Cancer Day. That’s why the current blog post answers the question of what cancer actually is and how it develops.
Cancer was already described by the ancient Egyptians in the
so-called „Edmin Smith Papyrus“.1 It pictured the removal of tumors from the breast of women using a
tool called „fire drill“.1 it was also noted that there’s no treatment
for this type of disease.1
