It is generally accepted that cancer is a disease with a genetic background related to acquired or hereditary mutations, gene translocations and over expression of some genes.
Mutations take place in genes that are responsible for the smooth operation of the organism with regards to the cellular proliferation, differentiation and cellular death. The majority of cancers is sporadic and is presented in relatively elder people, as they occur from the accumulation of mutations in genes such as K-RAS, EGFR, BRAF, P53 etc. Such mutations are also related to response to targeted therapies.
