Which mutations affecting the cell cycle would be likely to lead to the development of cancer?
Mutations affecting apoptosis or programmed cell death (such as an error in p53 protein). Any kind of mutation that increased rate of cell division, or extended telemeres, or inhibited DNA repair.
Your brother is in fremantle hospital and has lung cancer but he is unconscious because the cancer is affecting his brain and he has lost memory how is this so?
It is likely that the cancer in the lung metastasized to the brain, affecting the hippocampus. Read More

If the chromosome mutations fail, then it is most likely to lead to a sign of cancer, since chromosome has failed to mutate properly. Read More

What kind of cells most likely result from uncontrolled growth due to mutations in genes that control the cell cycle?
cancer cells Read More
Exposure to radiation and some mutagen compounds can mutate animal DNA. The mutations will not work anything like they do in movies and TV. The mutations, if they have any noticeable effect, will most likely result in cell death or cancer. Read More
We have genes that can suppress tumor development. If these are damaged or mutated, some studies indicate tumors and cancer can be more likely to develop. See more in the related questions about p53. Read More
it will likely concentrate in the bones, either affecting the marrow or causing bone cancer. Read More

What structure within a cell is most likely to play a major role in the development of generations of cancer cells?
The DNA inside the cell is the part that mutates and turns a cell into cancer. Read More

Which birth defect is most likely the effect of exposure to cigarette smoke which can affect cell differentiation during embryo development?
Childhood cancer. Read More
The most likely effect of an error during DNA translation is a mutation. Some mutations are beneficial, some are deadly and some are what is called "nonsense" mutations. Nonsense mutations have no benefits nor do they have any "bad" consequences. Read More
Breast cancer, as all cancers, is highly complex and caused by mutations in numerous genes - each cancer, however, will likely have different gene mutations. However, there are some genes which are commonly mutated in a small proportion of breast cancers (a mutation in these genes shows increased susceptibility in a number of families) - the most commonly referred to are BRCA1 and BRCA2. BRCA1 is found on 17q21 (chromosome 17, q arm, band 21)… Read More
Drinking alcohol abusively over a period of decades has been implicated statistically with the development of liver cancer. Interestingly, cancer is much more likely to develop after an alcohol abuser stops drinking. That's because it is during the period that the liver is rapidly regenerating that abnormal cells are more likely to develop. Read More
In genetics, a mutagen (Latin, literally origin of change) is a physical or chemical agent that changes the genetic material, usually DNA, of an organism and thus increases the frequency of mutations above the natural background level. As many mutations cause cancer, mutagens are therefore also likely to be carcinogens. Not all mutations are caused by mutagens: so-called "spontaneous mutations" occur due to spontaneous hydrolysis, errors in DNA replication, repair and recombination. This is from… Read More
UV, X-Ray, Gamma. These are the higher frequency regions of the EM Spectrum and therefore have more energy so are more likely to cause cell damage or DNA mutations. Read More
Which is more likely to develop adaptations to a changing ecosystem a population that often has many mutation or a population that has few mutations?
A population with many mutations. Read More
Diseases not caused by pathogens include genetic disorders, mutations in the cells, and other disorders not caused by viruses, bacteria, prions, micro organisms, etc. An example would be muscular dystrophy or even cancer, although many pathogens can increase the likely hood of cancer developing Read More
No, many are recessive such as the allele conferring sickle cell anaemia. Recessive mutations are most common. Dominant mutations are less likely to arise by accident than recessive mutants. Read More
Which of the forms of cancer is LEAST likely to metastasize? Read More
Most likely. Not because cancer is not contagious Read More
Cancer is the result of genetic mutations that result in cells in the body growing in an uncontrolled and invasive way. Most of the types of cells in our bodies reproduce throughout our lives, some quickly like skin celss, some slowly like brain cells. These genetic mutations can occur at any time during a cell's reproduction but are more likely in the presence of something that encourages errors during the reproduction of the cell's DNA… Read More
I do not really think so. The reason heating pads have come under scrutiny in relation to cancer is because they give off an electromagnetic fields (EMF) which some studies have linked to increase risk of cancer. Most studies have been done with power lines which are notorious for giving off very strong EMFs, but recent interest has stirred about the effects of common household items such as electric heating pads. The scientific evidence for… Read More

Insular communities tend to get certain diseases more. It can be because of religion, heritage, or inbreeding as well since if there are mutations and people only marry others with the same mutations, then they would be more likely to have children with whatever condition. Read More
A chain smoker will likely develop emphysema and possible lung cancer. Read More
Can the genetic mutations from older fathers accelerate physical and intelligence increase consistent with genetic mutations and evolution of the human species?
Doubtful. Aside from a fluke copying error the mutations in germ line cells of the older father are, statistically, much more likely to be deleterious in nature, swamping any beneficial mutations along for the ride. Read More

NO IT DOES NOT. A "cancer" sign as in the zodiac sign, is a crab. By no means will anyone with a cancer sign be anymore likely to get cancer than, say, a libra. Read More

Most likely because a clone is an exact replica of yourself. If you have cancer, your clones has the genes to have cancer. Read More
You do not say what comparison you are making. You might mean, why are Australians more likely to get skin cancer than, let us say, the British are, or you might mean, why are Australians more likely to get skin cancer than they are to get liver cancer. Or you may want to know why they are more likely to get skin cancer than they used to be last year. Read More
It is less likely to cause lung cancer, but far more likely to cause oral cancers - of the mouth and pharynx. Read More

The most likely reason for the development of a B12 deficiency is a dietary deficiency. The development can also come from gastritis or even malabsorption of food. Read More
well, men who smoke are 23 times more likely to develop lung cancer, and as for women, they are 13 times more likely to develop lung cancer if they smoke. Read More
Partly yes. When organisms procreate there are always mutations, (mistakes), in the copying of the DNA. When a mutation or series of mutations helps a species to live through changes in environment it would be considered more successful and would be more likely to have offspring to pass on those mutations to the next generation.
