Can insects get cancer or tumours? Does it happen often? I would guess not
because insects usually don't live very long, but I haven't been able to find
much information in the web about it. And some insects like termites and I seem
to remember a certain kind of beetle do live upwards of 15 years. Is it just
that their cells replicate very slowly?
