Cancer is the general name for over 100 medical conditions involving uncontrolled and dangerous cell growth. Scientists suggest that some cancer is caused by genetic factors, while other forms are caused by environmental conditions. In other words, one patient may already have a family history of breast cancer while another was exposed to a carcinogenic (cancer-causing) chemical in a factory. Both suffer from cancer--the only difference is the root mechanism which triggered the abnormal cell growth.


Vesanoid
belongs to a group of medicines known as retinoids. It causes the death of certain types of cancer cells by interfering with their growth and reproduction. It is used for the treatment of a type of leukemia (cancer of the white blood cells) known as acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Your doctor may choose to use this medication for other types of cancer not listed here. If you're unsure why you are taking this medication, please ask your doctor.
