Abstract
This review paper aims at presenting the overall scenario of the present trends and advancements in development in the treatment of cancer. Nanorobots help us in bridging the technological gap between the different fields of sciences on the nanoscale. According to the World Health Organisation, the leading cause of the death in the present scenario is the Cancer. Currently there are two types of treatment processes used for cancer treatment: chemotherapy and radiotherapy. But with the advancement in technology, the nanotechnology has come up with an excellent idea of introducing Nanorobots that use cadherin signals and chemicals along with body heat as their fuel to target and kill the tumour cells. This is a revolution in the field of medical technology and also an alternative to the chemo and radio-therapy, therefore finding a solution to one of the most challenging problems without any side effects.
