  1. cancer versus tumor

    31 October 2014

    It is true your paper never used the term cancer, but instead it talkes about tumors. Usually, if one refers to tumors it includes cancers that are considered to be malignant tumors. Thus, we may agree that your study is supposed to be a tumor study.
