What is Cancer

Updated: Mar 17

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the world, it’s a severe disease in which development of abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy normal body tissue and ultimately spread to other parts of the body. The cells in our body have specific functioning and a fixed lifespan. Once the role of a particular cells gets over, it receives instructions to die so that it can be replaced with a new proper functioning cell. Cancerous cells lack the ability to instruct cells to die, thus due to improper functioning they keep building up, continuously use body nutrients and oxygen and keep nourishing the cells. Ultimately, they form tumours, impair the immune system and disturb the proper functioning of the body.


Types of Cancer


Cancerous cells may appear in one area, some types of cancer cause rapid cell growth, while others cause cells to grow and divide at a slower rate. There are more than 200 types of cancer, some common ones are: -


i) Carcinoma: Cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs.

ii) Sarcoma: Cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.

iii) Leukemia: Cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.

iv) Lymphoma and myeloma: Cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.

v) Central nervous system cancers: Cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.

There are varied causes of cancer, and some are preventable.

  • Excessive smoking, heavy alcohol and tobacco consumption.

  • Excess body weight and lack of physical inactivity
