body tissues: the cells that form the organs

What we think of as "cancer" is actually a group of more than one hundred separate diseases. These diseases are all characterized by an abnormal and unregulated growth of cells. This growth destroys surrounding

and may spread to other parts of the body in a process that is known as metastasis.

tumor: cells divide at an accelerated rate, they often begin to form a mass of tissue called a tumor.
Why does it concern us?

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease of humans and other primates caused by an Ebola virus. Symptoms start two days to three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches. Typically, vomiting, diarrhea and rash follow, along with decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, affected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally.
The virus can be spread in several ways to others. The virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin) with

a sick person's blood or body fluids (urine, saliva, and vomit)
objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected body fluids
infected animals
Healthcare workers and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids.
