What is Cancer?
Cancer is a result of an abnormal growth of the body cells. It has been scientifically proven that cancer develops within the body, thus, all body organs are prone to cancer. It begins when genetic mutations occur within a cell, disrupting the normal regulatory mechanisms that control cell growth, division, and death.
Some of the causes of cancer include genetic predisposition, exposure to carcinogens such as tobacco smoke, ultraviolet radiation, certain chemicals, infections, hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle factors such as diet and physical activity.
