Core Tip A recent debate among renowned scholars prompted us to review cancer pathogenesis in a holistic approach. One group attributed cancer to “random errors in DNA multiplication” (Tomasetti C, Science, 2015) while other experts credited environmental factors for cancer causation (Wu S, Nature, 2016). However, we put forward the concept that cancer is multifactorial and both intrinsic (DNA multiplication errors) and extrinsic (environmental) factors contribute to carcinogenesis. In this review, we examined these risk factors in some detail covering genetics, epigenetics, immunity, inflammation and infections. We acknowledge the contribution of each risk factor is different in various types of cancer. In some cancers, genetics plays a powerful role while in others, metabolism contributes a stronger impact. Therefore, a holistic understanding of carcinogenesis is truly necessary considering multi­system involvement in cancer development.
