Cancer Description

According to WHO, Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells. It can affect almost any part of the body.  The growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites.

There are many different kinds of cancers. Many cancers can be prevented by avoiding exposure to common risk factors, such as tobacco smoke. In addition, a significant proportion of cancers can be cured, by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, especially if they are detected early.
