HOMOEOPATHY IN CANCER
Cancer comes under the category of chronic diseases.Definition of chronic disease is that ‘ it is a derangement of the vital force with an insidious onset and a gradual progress during which the vital force offers imperfect resistance so that the disease if not treated adequately , eventually ends with the death of the patient.’

The derangement occurs first at the general level and the eventual expression- the neoplasm may occur at the local level.The individual susceptibility will predispose the individual to the disease proper in general , while the weakness or the sensitivity of a particular part/ viscus/ system will lead to localization of disease in particular. The derangement proceeds from functional to structural level.

CANCER REMEDIES
Cancer is not inherited but only the disposition.Syphilitic and tuberculous diathesis are two important states that precede malignancy.

CONCLUSION:
In fact, no remedy is specific in any disease in homoeopathy.The real specific is a remedy selected as per mental, miasmatic,physical causation etc,at all levels at an early stage of the disease when prognosis is favourable.In terminal cases where prognosis is unfavourable the disease effect and suffering should be palliated by an acute remedy selected on the acute totality of the particular part affected.
