Medical nanorobot. Computer artwork of a medical nanorobot injecting a drug into a cancer (red) in a human body. The drug will kill the cancer cells. This is an example of the future development of microscopic robot technology to treat diseases in new ways. Cancer is the uncontrolled replication of cells, forming a malignant growth. A cancer can kill a patient by disrupting normal body function, especially if it spreads throughout the body.
