The computation of the survival and hazard rate functions for various cancer models has occupied a central place in carcinogenesis modeling for about two decades. As a result, the survival and hazard rate functions are often called the two fundamental quantities in the field. The author has recently written a package named CarcinoMod that computes the two fundamental quantities for a wide array of multistage carcinogenesis models. The purpose of this presentation is to show how the symbolic computational capability of Mathematica was combined with its numerical power to handle the two fundamental quantities in a unified approach, making the package easy to use.
