Random mutations predominant factor in many cancers

All cancers are caused by a combination of bad luck, the environment and heredity. But new research is suggesting that bad luck is the most predominant factor.

“If two-thirds of cancer incidence across tissues is explained by random DNA mutations that occur when stem cells divide, then changing our lifestyle and habits will be a huge help in preventing certain cancers, but this may not be as effective for a variety of others … We should focus more resources on finding ways to detect such cancers at early, curable stages”
