Cancer is a disease in which some of the body’s cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body.
Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.
Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working.
Old cells do not die and instead grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells.
These extra cells may form a mass of tissue, called a tumor.
A cancer can grow into,or begin to push on nearby organs, blood vessels, and nerves.
This pressure causes some of the signs and symptoms of cancer.
A cancer may also cause symptoms like fever, extreme tiredness (fatigue), or weight loss.
This may be because cancer cells use up much of the body’s energy supply.
