Cancer leads to morbidity and mortality in the world. Cancer cases are expected to rise by 70% in the next 2 decades. The most common sites of cancer found in men are lungs, colorectum, prostate, stomach and liver, and those in women are breasts, colorectum, lungs, cervix and stomach.
When there is an abnormal cell growth, the condition is called Cancer. This can be a group of more than 100 diseases. If DNA is damaged in normal cell, the cell will either repair the damage or it will die.
But if DNA in cancer cell is damaged, it doesn’t die as it should. Instead, it continues making new cells that the body doesn’t require. The new cells posses the same damaged DNA from where they originated.
These cancer cells gather up and form tumors that invade nearby tissues and push it aside. Not all tumors are malignant. Tumors that are not cancerous are called Benign Tumors, and are seldom life-threatening.
What are the signs & symptoms?
Signs and symptoms of Cancer depend upon the size of the tumor, and the extent to which it affects nearby organs and tissues. In certain parts of the body, even a small tumor can show symptoms. On the other hand, some tumors grow bigger, but may not cause any symptoms.
The growing cancer pushes the nearby organs, tissues, blood vessels or nerves. This puts pressure on tissues, which shows as signs and symptoms. If it is a spreading cancer (metastasized), its signs and symptoms can be seen in different parts of the body.
The symptoms may be fever, fatigue or unexplained weight loss, because cancer cells use up body’s energy supply. Other symptoms include pain, skin changes, change in bowel habits and bladder functions, unusual bleeding, white spots inside the mouth, nagging cough, etc.
What causes Cancer?
Genetic factors and lifestyle factors like tobacco smoking, diet, physical activity, infections, exposure to different chemicals, UV or other radiations, and environmental carcinogens are potent causes of cancer. Cancer is not contagious. It has no evidence of spreading through touching, kissing, sex, sharing meals or breathing the same air.
