Nanohybrids more specifically organic–inorganic nanohybrids are providing a vast range of functionalities for diagnostics, drug delivery, and treatment of deadly disease that brought them to light for the attention of every vigilant scientist. Huge efforts have been resulted for their use in different ways, while scientists are still striving to make them a best source for the treatment of cancer. This piece of work not only emphasizes the nanohybrids but also their different types, their qualities, their preparation, mechanism of action toward cancer, their recent development for the treatment of cancer. However, it has been concluded that more challenges are there in way of organic–inorganic nanohybrid for the treatment of cancer which can be removed by introducing different approach for their use as cancer drugs.
