In a recent revealation by scientists it has been said that Dinosaurs too suffered cancer. When scientists first unearthed fossils of a horned dinosaur called Centrosaurus in the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park in Canada's Alberta province in 1989, they spotted a badly malformed leg bone they figured was a healed fracture. The malformation was a manifestation of osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer.
