Since several decades, scientists are actively engaged in finding out effective diagnoses and treatment methods for cancer therapy. Early accurate detection is a key factor for effective treatment. However, conventional cancer diagnostic methods have several intrinsic limitations. The advent of nanotechnology boosts cancer research. So far, nanoparticles, hybrid nanosystems, and nanoplatforms have been proposed under the umbrella of nanomedicine for the same. These nanoplatforms are highly sensitive and specific for the detection of cancer cells, extracellular cancer biomarkers, and also for vivo imaging. Nanomedicine has the potential to effectively treat cancer by reducing the limitations of existing traditional cancer treatments. This chapter gives a detailed account of nanoparticle-based methods for the early detection and treatment of cancer.
