Cancer drugs are pharmaceutical preparations used for treating different types of cancer disorders by affecting and modifying the disease process at various stages. These drugs help in curing cancer by causing inhibition or suppression of cancer cell growth. Some of the key advantages of cancer drugs are their ability to reduce tumor size, slow tumor growth, and kill cancer cells. They improve the quality of life of cancer patients by reducing cancer symptoms and slowing disease progression. The rising prevalence of cancer worldwide coupled with growing awareness about various treatment options for cancer is propelling the demand for effective cancer drugs.
