English term or phrase: precancer
A term concerned to cancer illnesses.
Sergei Lisin
zengan(前癌)
Explanation:
I can't correctly answer to your asking other terms, but this is most correctly quoated as zengan. "pre-" means "before something or some time range" and cancer is leterally cancer which is translated as "gan". I could also refer here to that "micro-" means very tiny, so this term can be translated "bishou-" or "shou-", adding some these meaning to terms coming directly after them.
