Received Date: May 01, 2019; Published Date: June 11, 2019
Cancer epidemic led to worldwide to search for a new “game changer” concept to govern cancer research and cancer treatment. Western medicine-based cancer research has been extending the impasse without resolution in sigh for improving survival of patients with solid malignant tumors in the last four decades due to heterogeneity in cancer tissues. Such a deadlock charts a course to learn lessons from the developing countries, directly or indirectly to complement the exhausted Western medicine. We propose a new concept of “Cancer niche as a garbage disposal machine” with implications of traditional Chinese medicine-mediated restoration of normal balance between body and disease to bring the fight against cancer under control.
