ABOUT CANCER

Cancer is defined as abnormal and out of control growth of cells in any organ or part of the body. There are various reasons that lead to the development of a cancerous growth in the body. Genetic predisposition and environmental factors together play an important role in developing a cancer. Genetic constitution of the body is something that cannot be controlled, but controlling the external environmental factors is in one’s hands. Environmental factors contribute to more than 90% of all cancers. Active or passive smoking is one of the biggest causes resulting in developing various types of cancers in the body.
