Transcript of Whats Cancer

Does cancer make you tired
The cancer or its treatment may make you feel very tired. The tiredness may not go away even when you rest. It can go on for weeks, months or even years after you finish treatment. This is called chronic fatigue, which means long lasting.
Is cancer all the same
Is cancer bad
Cancer happens when cells that are not normal grow and spread very fast. ... Cancer cells usually group or clump together to form tumors (say: TOO-mers). A growing tumor becomes a lump of cancer cells that can destroy the normal cells around the tumor and damage the body's healthy tissues.
Is cancer infectious
Cancer is NOT contagious. A healthy person cannot “catch” cancer from someone who has it. There is no evidence that close contact or things like sex, kissing, touching, sharing meals, or breathing the same air can spread cancer from one person to another.
How does cancer harms the body
Cancer harms the body when altered cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumors (except in the case of leukemia where cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream).
Can cancer hurt
Most cancer pain is caused by the tumour pressing on bones, nerves or other organs in your body. Sometimes pain is related to your cancer treatment. For example, some chemotherapy drugs can cause numbness and tingling in your hands and feet or a burning sensation at the place where they are injected
NO, all cancer cells are not same. You can imagine how the blood cell (in Blood Cancer: often referred as Leukemia) be similar to the breast cell (breast cancer). Rather sharing common morphology to other cancer cells, cancer cells have COMPARABLE morphology with the tissue affected by cancer.
how many types of cancer are there
There are more than 100 types of cancer, characterized by abnormal cell growth. There are many different causes, ranging from radiation to chemicals to viruses; an individual has varying degrees of control over exposure to cancer-causing agents
