1 Cancer

Cancer is a disease in which the cells of the body which have this cancer or tumor multiply rapidly. These cells are benign and even start affecting the surrounding healthy cells.

Cancer can start anywhere in the body and it affects the body’s ability to create new cells in place of the cells that are old and die. Cancer causes the process of replacement of older and dead cells to become disrupted, which causes these cells to survive, when usually they are replaced with newer and healthier cells.

These cells then divide and form a tumor. Cancers are of many types, but the tumors are mainly of two types; malignant and benign. Malignant tumors easily spread and harm the nearby tissues and organ. These tumors grow uncontrolably and there is no cure for them. Meanwhile the benign tumors do not spread and they are easy to remove surgically. But if benign tumor forms in brain, it can be fatal.
