According to 2018 report of American Cancer Society, in the United States, 15.5 million people are living with a history of cancer as of January 2016.
Cancer is a disease that results when cellular changes lead to uncontrolled growth and division of cells. Some types of cancer cause cells to divide and grow at a slower rate while others cause uncontrolled cell growth. Some may visible like tumors while others do not like leukemia.
The cells of the body have a specific function and fixed lifecycle. Cell death and the formation of a new cell are necessary for the body to function properly. However, disturbance in this natural phenomenon can lead to cancer.
The process of death of a cell is termed as Apoptosis. When the cell is not able to complete the process of Apoptosis, then the condition of the cell develops cancerous. Moreover, with the help of nutrients and oxygen, these cells develop and may lead to form tumors, impair the immune system, and prevent the body to function properly.
Cancer can be caused due to many reasons. Some preventable causes include:
- Smoking cigarettes
- Heavy consumption of alcohol
- Poor nutrition
- Physical inactivity
There are also other causes that are not preventable, for example, age. According to the American Cancer Society, doctors diagnose 87% of cancer patients who are older than 50 years in the U.S.
