Cancer is the name which is given to a collection of related or similar diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the body’s cells begin to divide continuously without stopping and mostly spread into surrounding tissues of the body.
Cancer can initiate almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells. Normally, human cells grow and start dividing frequently to form new cells as the body needs them. When these cells grow, the old or damaged cells, they die, and new cells take their place.
As cells become more and more abnormal, old or damaged cells survive when they should die, and new cells start forming when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide continuously without stopping and may form many growths called tumors.
The purpose of cancer treatments is that
- cancer improves
- the disease is brought under control
- cancer recurrence is prevented, and
- the symptoms caused by the tumour are alleviated.
Nowadays various immunological therapies and smart drug delivery (or targeted drug delivery) are mostly used. There are a variety of different cancer drugs available which are usually used in combinations.
How Cancer Arises
Cancer is caused by certain changes in genes, which are the basic physical units of inheritance. Genes are usually arranged in long strands of tightly packed DNA called chromosomes. Cancer is a genetic disease which is caused by the changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide. Genetic changes that cause cancer are mostly inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of problems that occur when cells divide, because of the damage to DNA caused by certain environmental conditions.
