What is cancer?

Did you know Cancer is the most feared disease in the world today? Well, the reason is simple! All cancers occur when normal cells begin proliferating unbounded.  But despite being the deadliest of all, it is not always fatal. Yes! With sophisticated techniques of early detection and innovative treatment modalities, we have been able to conquer the most feared consequence of this disease. At the same time, researchers around the world, are continuously trying to develop or discover effective treatment options for cancer.

How does cancer start in your body?

Cancer is triggered by genetic mutation which stimulates healthy cells to multiply, form clusters called tumors or break away and spread via the lymph, blood or direct contact with other parts of the body- a process medically termed as Metastasis. In this way, the cancer cells continue to increase and outnumber the normal cells in a certain part of the body hampering its normal functioning. For example, oesophageal carcinoma manifests as difficulty in swallowing, called dysphagia while lung cancers often present as dyspnea or difficulty in breathing.

What are cancer symptoms?

Cancer may or may not present with symptoms. There have been cases where the patient lived with cancer developing within the body but there were no manifesting symptoms. In other cases, there may be obvious symptoms pertaining to the part affected while in yet another scenario, symptoms may be so vague that the diagnosis of cancer is missed by even the most experienced physician.
