What is a Cancer?

Cancerous cells usually multiply uncontrollably. It can result in tumours and can cause damage to the immune system and other body parts that can be fatal. Basically, cancer describes the disease that results when there is uncontrollable growth of cells. Certain forms of cancer can lead to visible growths known as tumours.

Most of the cells of the body have specific time periods or lifespans. Cell death is called apoptosis. A cell gets the instruction to die so that the body can replace it with a new cell that would work better. Cancerous cells lack the aspects that instruct them to stop multiplying and to die. As a result, they grow in the body, using nutrients and oxygen. Cancerous cells can turn into tumours and weaken the immune system.

Causes of Cancer

There are many reasons behind cancer and some can be prevented. Apart from smoking, there are several risk factors associated with cancer, such as:

heavy alcohol consumption

excess body weight

physical inactivity

poor nutrition

Possible Treatment Options for Cancer

Doctors suggest treatment options according to the cancer type, its stage, and overall health. The following are some approaches used to treat cancer:

Chemotherapy is helpful in destroying cancerous cells with medications. The drug can also shrink tumours, but it can lead to some side effects.

Hormone therapy uses medications that change the working of certain hormones or interfere with the ability of the body to produce them.

Immunotherapy involves taking medications and other treatment options to enhance the immune system and help it fight against cancerous cells.

To kill cancerous cells, radiation therapy uses high-dose radiation. In addition to this, the doctor may suggest using radiation to shrink a tumour prior to surgery.

A stem cell transplant is helpful for those with blood-related cancers, such as lymphoma or leukaemia. It is helpful in removing cells that radiation or chemotherapy has killed. Lab technicians strengthen the cells and again put them back into the body.

Surgery is a part of treatment. A surgeon may remove lymph nodes to prevent or reduce the disease’s spread.

Types of Cancer

The name of the cancer is given to a body part in which it begins. For instance, if a cancer develops in the lung and spreads to the liver, then it will be known as lung cancer. The following are different types of cancer:

appendix cancer

bladder cancer

bone cancer

breast cancer

brain cancer

colon or colorectal cancer

cervical cancer

duodenal cancer

ear cancer

endometrial cancer

esophageal cancer

heart cancer

gallbladder cancer

kidney or renal cancer

oral cancers

pancreatic cancer

penile cancer

prostate cancer

rectal cancer

small intestine cancer

skin cancer

spleen cancer

stomach or gastric cancer

testicular cancer

thyroid cancer

uterine cancer

vaginal cancer

vulvar cancer

Conclusion

Cancer has uncontrolled cell division as one of its symptoms. Additionally, it prevents them from dying when their life cycle should have begun. Smoking is only one example of a lifestyle choice that may influence how the condition develops. Numerous factors affect how DNA interacts with cells and regulates their division and demise.
