Abstract :
In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer out of 58 million deaths worldwide. Based on projections, cancer deaths will continue to rise with an estimated 9 million people dying from cancer in 2015, and 11.4 million dying in 2030. The increasing trend of cancer incidence has forced the humanity to work more on the cancer prevention and treatments. It is important for the public health professionals to understand the dynamics and kinetics of tumor incidence for future strategies. Over here we have reviewed solid tumor modeling, their detail classification, treatment strategies available along with their merits and demerits. To overcome these limitations, design focus for future studies is suggested.
