Abstract: Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field which combines engineering, biology, physics and chemistry. This field has evolved over the past half century and most scientists now agree that it has truly come of age. Nanotechnology is well placed in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer as it enables doctors and scientists to operate at a molecular and cellular level. This allows treatment to be focussed on specific areas without impacting surrounding organs and systems. Using nanotechnology, it is possible that cancer cells could be targeted and destroyed with almost no damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the developments and future uses of nanotechnology in diagnosing and treating cancer. In addition, we will explain how the advances in the uses of nanotechnology, combined with other developments in medicine, have led scientists to predict that cancer will be eradicated in less than ten years
