Cancer

Cancer, a disease with over 100 variations, is marked by the presence of cell growth that abnormally and uncontrollably advances and that has the ability to invade bodily tissue.  Uncontrollable cell growth begins with one cell that has damaged DNA and instead of dying, continues to reproduce other damaged cells.  The location in the body where the first cell develops determines the type of cancer that an individual will have.  Cancer of the breast, skin, lung, colon and prostate are examples of the disease.  Cancer in different areas of the body will cause different symptoms and thus may require different treatments.  Types of treatment offered for cancer include chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.  Different cancers are distinct from each other and while some have apparent causes, others can only be associated with risk factors, as opposed to a specific root.
