Question

Is it possible to identify the first cell to mutate in cancer, like the ground zero for cancer, if you will?

Answer

Kat - No. It probably isn't. Cancer cells are so mutated, it would be virtually impossible to go all the way back and in some cases, the original cell may not even be there.
