Cancer is not a single disease. It is an umbrella term used to describe conditions that involve abnormal cell growth in different parts of the body. In fact, there are over 100 types of cancer, the most common of which are breast, skin, lung, colon, and prostate.

What causes cancer? Damage or mutations to DNA can shoot up the risk of cancer. Carcinogens or substances that damage the DNA are also common causes of cancer. These include radiation (x-ray or gamma), tobacco, asbestos, arsenic, and chemicals in the car exhaust fumes. Exposure to these carcinogens form cell-damaging free radicals.

What are the symptoms? Symptoms vary depending on the location of cancer, and the size of the tumor. Some can be seen or felt on the skin like lumps on the breast or testicles. Skin cancers, meanwhile, can be detected through notable changes in warts or moles. White spots inside the mouth may indicate oral cancer. Other common signs and symptoms include excessive sweating, fatigue, fever, anemia, and unexplained and sudden drop in weight.

How is cancer treated? Treatment depends on the cancer type and stage, an the patient’s age and health condition. Patients usually receive a combination of treatment which may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, gene therapy, and immunotherapy. Many naturalists also promote the use of anti-cancer herbs, as discussed in the article below.

Can cancer be prevented? Yes, many types of cancers are preventable, especially those that are linked to lifestyle choices and behaviors like lung cancer (commonly caused by smoking tobacco) or liver cancer (may be triggered by drinking alcohol). Skin cancer can be prevented by minimizing sun exposure, and wearing sunscreen before going outdoors. A healthy lifestyle (healthy eating plus regular exercise) is also another excellent cancer preventive measure.
