What are cancer cells?
Cancer cells are abnormal cells that grow & divide uncontrollably, often forming tumors or invading nearby tissues & organs.
Unlike normal cells, cancer cells do not die off naturally or function properly, & they can spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.
Cancer cells can arise from any type of cell in the body & can form in any part of the body.
The exact cause of cancer is not fully understood, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic mutations & environmental factors.
These mutations can occur spontaneously or be caused by exposure to factors such as tobacco smoke, ultraviolet radiation, or certain chemicals.
Cancer cells are different from normal cells in several ways. They often have abnormal shapes & sizes, & they may divide more rapidly than normal cells.
Cancer cells may also be able to evade the body's immune system and resist the effects of chemotherapy or other cancer treatments.
Treating cancer typically involves a combination of approaches, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or targeted therapy.
Early detection & treatment are crucial for improving the chances of successful treatment & recovery.
