In this paper, we describe a system dynamics model that views cancer as a dysfunction of the cellular system analogous to those of human societies. Our experiments with the model replicate the propagation of the ailment and the impacts of the treatments. It also represents work in progress and should be viewed as a proposition that can be further developed to understand cancer and used to create appropriate combinations of interventions for specific situations.
