What is Cancer?
The term Cancer is a term used to describe diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and begin to invade what are otherwise healthy tissues. Cancer cells typically spread through the blood and lymph systems. There are more than 100 different types of Cancer. Most Cancers are named for the organ or cell in which they start. Cancer types are also typically grouped into broader categories. The main categories of Cancers include:
Carcinoma – Cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs.
Sarcoma – Cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.
Leukemia – Cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.
Lymphoma and myeloma – Cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.
Central nervous system Cancers – Cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.
