Cancers, of which there are an estimated 200 different kinds, have the properties of uncontrolled growth of cells derived from normal tissues, and of being able to kill the host by the spread of cells from the site of origin to distant sites or by local spread. Cancers that arise in epithelial tissues are called carcinomas; those from mesenchymal tissues are classified as sarcomas. Leukemias are also classed as malignant growths. Medical nanorobots can be used to quickly locate and identify individual cancerous cells, and then repair or destroy them as required throughout the entire human body.
