This study has proposed a Stochastic Model for cancer growth under chemotherapy with the assumptions of the growth, transition and loss parameters of different stages are inter and intra dependent. A trivariate Poisson process approach has been adopted for modeling the three stage cancer growth by considering the stages of cells in the tumor namely normal cell, mutant cell and malignant cell in the presence and absence of chemotherapy during time 't'. Stochastic differential equations were obtained and the three dimensional joint probability functions along with related statistical measures were derived. Model behavior was analysed through numerical data.
