Abstract: The present investigation of the thesis concentrates on the biophysical parameters of laser diffraction, viscosity, surface tension, volume flow rate, and pH, and refractive index, electrical conductivity of blood of various types of cancer patients before and after completion of the radiation treatment along with a few normal humans. The dielectric nature of cancerous erythrocytes as well as healthy persons is also studied. Cancer cells are different from normal cells in some aspects. They penetrate and infiltrate into the adjoining tissues and dislocate their functions. They infiltrate the body through the fluid connective tissue – blood. It provides one of the methods of communication between the cells of different parts of the body. In this thesis a study has been done on conceptual points on cancer such as types of cancer, histology and pathology of cancer, biochemistry of cancer, radiation effects on cancer, treatment of cancerphysical approach, chemical approach, and surgical approach. It includes literature survey on pathological, biochemical, histological and radiation aspects of cancer. The cells, whether, normal or cancerous, are possessed with natural, intrinsic oscillating electric fields. Cells killed by radiation, do not spin when subjected to high frequency electric fields, A.C or pulsed D.C. An effort is made to study theoretical aspects of cellular oscillations, theoretical models on cancer, radiation dose & dosimetry and target theory. When the cancer cells are subjected to radiation it may result in the damage to DNA, which is the critical target in the cell.
