CANCER
THE BIOLOGY OF CANCER
Cancer is a disease that is caused by an abnormal, uncontrolled division of cells that effects various parts of the body. There are two types of cancerous cells, benign tumors which do not spread (metastasize) and malignant tumors that do spread.
DEADLIEST 4 CANCERS
LUNG
LUNG CANCER
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These cells do not carry out the actual functions of a normal cell causing the formation of the unhealthy lung tissue. As the mutated cells grow, they form tumors that tend to interfere with the functioning of the lungs, which provides oxygen to the body through the blood.
STOMACH CANCER
Stomach Cancer is also known as a type of Gastric Cancer that begins in the stomach, esophagus or the junctions of these two organs. It is a type of cancer that slowly develop over time through different regions of the stomach and can lead to other parts of the body destroying the other organs as well.

Preventions

Avoid smoking and coming in contact with second hand smoke.
Exercise.
Make your home and workplace safer.
Educate yourself.


Treatments
Treatments for Lung Cancer can involve :
Surgical Removal
Chemotherapy
Radiation Therapy
As well as a combination of these therapies.

Treatment Usually Varies on the amount, size, and placement of tumor as well as the health status of the patient.
Preventions
No actual research on how to prevent this disease.

Things You can Try
Eat more fruits and vegetables
Reduce the amount of salty and smoked foods you eat.
Avoid smoking.

Treatments
Based on the size and the stage of the cancer treatment varies.

Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumors - Is a type of stomach tumor that is treated by the use of an endoscope to surgically remove the tumor

LIVER CANCER
The liver can be affected by primary liver cancer, which arises in the liver, or by cancer which forms in other sites and then spreads to the liver. Most liver cancer is secondary or metastatic, meaning it started elsewhere in the body. Primary liver cancer, which starts in the liver, accounts for about 2% of cancers in the U.S., but up to half of all cancers in some undeveloped countries.

Prevention
Avoiding and treating hepatitis infections
Limiting alcohol and tobacco use
Getting to and staying at a healthy weight
Treating diseases that increase liver cancer risk
Limiting exposure to cancer-causing chemicals

Treatments
If your cancer is at an early stage and the rest of your liver is healthy, surgery (partial hepatectomy) may cure you. Unfortunately, only a small number of people with liver cancer are in this category.
An important factor affecting outcome is the size of the tumor(s) and whether nearby blood vessels are affected. Larger tumors or ones that invade blood vessels are more likely to come back in the liver or spread elsewhere after surgery

Preventions
The treatment for ones condition with colon cancer depends on the stages of how far the cancer has damaged the colon and rectum. The later the stage the more fatal the disease may be.
COLON CANCER
Colon Cancer also known as Colorectal Cancer that starts in the colon or the rectum. These cancers can be referred to separately as colon cancer or rectal cancer, depending on where they start. There are five different cancers involved in colon and rectum .

& What it has to do with cancer
Also known as the Affordable Care Act is an act that allows people that can not afford insurance to be granted with the ability to have insurance.
Obama care is going to degrade medicine its ill effects will fall proportionality on patients with serious conditions, especially those with cancer.
