Concept

Problem: Human cancer can be thought of as a genetic disease because most A. cancer causing genes are inherited.B. cancers arise from mutations that accumulate in the telomeres.C. cancers arise from mutations in critical genes that regulate cell growth and division.D. cancers arise from chromosome deficiencies or degradation which are inherited.E. cancers are caused by viruses and it is wrong to consider it a disease arising from mutation.

FREE Expert Solution

Cancer is known to have developed through the accumulation of error in multiple genes resulting in the loss of function of some genes and uncontrolled expression of the others. As a result, cancer cells are easily develop and adapt because of their rapid growth and proliferation.
