Detection of cancer in tissue

  1. Oct 26, 2015 #1
    If I wanted to prove that some method is capable of destroying cancer cells, what would be the simplest
    way of going about this. Would it be sufficient to take a tissue sample containing cancer cells, and apply
    the procedure on it? How would you detect the existence of cancer cells before and after treatment?

    Sorry if this is utter nonsense, I am very unfamiliar with this field.

    Without the proper training and education you cannot prove that some method is capable of destroying cancer cells while leaving the many different types of non-cancerous cells in your body alive and undamaged. Cancer research should be left to the professionals. Thread locked.
