Cancer is a term used to describe over a hundred different diseases with certain features in common. A cancer begins with a change in the structure and function of a cell that causes the cell to divide and multiply out of control. The cells can subsequently invade and damage surroundings tissues, and cells can break away and spread to other areas in the body. A cancer is generally named for the organ or type of cell which it first begins to grow.
Cancers are generally classified as solid tumors and liquid tumors, solid tumors begins in an organ of the body, such as the breast or lung. Liquid tumors begins in the bone marrow or lymphatic system, which carries fluids throughout the body. Examples are leukemia (cancer of the blood or bone marrow), lymphoma (cancer of the lymphatic system), and multiple myeloma (cancer of the plasma cells in the blood).
Causes of cancer
Most cancers are caused by frequent or persistent exposure to external carcinogens 9chemicals, radiation, and viruses) and internal factors (hormones, immune conditions, and inherited or acquired genetic mutations). These carcinogens and internal factors can cause permanent structural changes in the genetic material of the cell.
