Do genes band together to promote the spread of cancer?

Filed under:

It seems that there is news about cancer almost every single day. There are various types and some that are deadly and some that are benign.

Some medical experts believe that a genetic predisposition can be enhanced by lifestyle choices that actually bring on the onset of cancer. On that front, researchers stated yesterday that four genes are now thought to actually "band together" to help cancer spread throughout the body.

Even further, research from a second study suggested that 87 different genes end up actually working together to help make cancer more vulnerable to drug treatment. The body does strange and mysterious things, yes?
