What Is Cancer?

Cancer is scary and deadly and brings disgust, anger, sadness and fear when the words are mentioned.  Cancer is a group of abnormal cells or toxic cells that congregate in a part of the body.  We all have cancer cells in us, but when the cancer cells take over all the good cells and become a burden on the body and its’ immune system, that’s when Cancer becomes a disease and becomes deadly.

Cancer can manifest as groups of abnormal cells that spread throughout the body or it can also manifest as a malignant tumor in the body.  There are hundreds if not thousands of different types of Cancer.  Some types of Cancer are extremely rare, were as others are more common.

Common Symptoms

Cancer can be hard to detect because sometimes an individual with Cancer might not have any symptoms.  Cancer can also imitate other diseases and an individual with Cancer might get misdiagnosed.  Common symptoms can vary depending on the Cancer and if a malignant tumor or mass was formed or not.

Symptoms can be anything from unexplained weight loss, unexplained bleeding, a lump or swelling, vomiting, nausea, extreme fatigue, unexplained pain and really can be anything depending on what type of Cancer it is and where in the body it is targeting.  This is what makes Cancer sometimes hard to diagnose or detect.

If you are having any sudden strange symptoms or find any lumps or masses in your body, see a doctor immediately.


The fact that Cancer can manifest as other diseases and sometimes create no symptoms, makes it sometimes hard to diagnose.  Typically, diagnosis comes from X-rays, Ultrasounds or MRI’s of specific regions that could possibly be infected by Cancer.  If a tumor is found, a biopsy is usually done to determine if the tumor is malignant, cancerous, or benign, non-cancerous.  Certain types of Cancers can also be diagnosed via specific blood tests.


Because Cancer is a complex disease, treatment is really multi-faceted and usually a multi-faceted approach is the most effective way in treating Cancer.

The most commonly used treatments for Cancer are Surgery, to remove the tumor or mass, if there is one, and/or chemotherapy or radiation therapy.  Though, this therapy is the most common, it does not always guarantee the eradication of Cancer and the side effects from both chemotherapy and radiation therapy can sometimes be more dangerous then the Cancer itself.

The following are some other treatments that have been shown to kill Cancer in the body:
