Oneology, the study of neoplastic diseases, is generally referred to as the cancer problem (Rubin, 1983). It is the study of a large variety of tumors of malignant nature with lethal potential. In spite of its lethal character, it is nowadays far from synonymous with “an incurable disease”. Much progress has been achieved to cope with all aspects of the cancer problem.
