If you have a real interest in this, I suggest you takes some time to study Biology and come to grips with just how difficult the whole process is.
I'm sure Biology is quite complex. And I'm not a biologist.

But the whole idea I'm suggesting isn't based on understanding biology as much as it is creating an application that can distinguish between health and unhealthy cells.

I realize that, in the case of cancer, where an organ has been damaged, a computer cannot "rebuild" the lost tissue. But it should certainly be able to target and burn/freeze harmful masses without creating further damage. (obviously with much more success that doctors can do today, bless their hearts)
