What is cancer? You have more than likely met or know of someone who has this disease, as it is very prevalent around the world today. Cancer is the condition in which cells grow uncontrollably at any location in the body. This is a genetic disease, which occurs in the body because of uncontrollable cell division, damage to the body’s DNA due to carcinogens, or gene inheritance. Normally, the body is able to identify cells that have damaged DNA and kill those cells before they can become cancerous, but that is not always the case. Cancer cells have adapted in order to grow without a signal to do so, ignore signaling altogether, spread to different areas of the body, and have even found a way to tell the immune system to keep them alive and help them grow.
