The category of Solid Cancer encompasses a range of malignancies that originate in solid tissues, such as breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer, as opposed to hematologic cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. These tumors are often characterized by the uncontrolled growth and division of cells within specific organs or tissues. Diagnosing and treating solid cancers generally involves a combination of imaging tests, biopsies, and treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and targeted therapies. The field is rapidly evolving with advancements in genetic sequencing, enabling personalized medicine approaches that can more precisely target the unique mutations driving each individual’s cancer.
