Cancer is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early detection and treatment are crucial for the prevention and control of cancer burden. In recent years, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have attracted considerable interest worldwide to develop a new-generation diagnostic and treatment tool for cancer. AgNPs can kill cancer cells, and they have also been hybridized with other materials to enhance the signal for different biosensing platforms. This review highlights recent advances of AgNPs in cancer diagnosis and treatment through up-to-date publications.
