What is Cancer?
Cancer is a disease where a group of cells multiply at an abnormally rapid pace. Normal cells in the body follow a pattern of cell growth, cell division and cell death. Cancerous cells, however, do not die off. Instead they grow and form new abnormal cells that develop into a mass, commonly known as a tumor. The only type of cancer that will not develop tumors is leukemia. In that instance, normal blood functions are interrupted by the abnormal production of cells in the blood stream.
Cancerous cells are able to invade other tissues and spread throughout the body through the blood and lymph systems. The tumor is then said to have metastasized or spread to another part of the body.
