Cancer is a class of diseases that is characterized by uncontrollable cell growth. There are over a hundred types of different cancer and each one is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.

1. Carcinoma

The most commonly diagnosed type of cancer is carcinoma.

This cancer starts in cells of the skin or of the tissue lining of organs.

This can affect the lungs, breasts, and pancreas, as well as the tissue lining of glands.

Much like other types of cancer, carcinomas are abnormal cells that divide without stopping.

One of the greatest concerns America has today is cancer.

Research indicates that the lifetime probability of developing cancer is higher for men at 46% while for women it is 36%.

The National Cancer Institute has put in place a challenge to eliminate suffering and death due to cancer.

To meet this, the nation is tackling the problem, and to this end, the creation of awareness has become a priority.

To conquer cancer you must know what the risks are, how lifestyle changes can help, about intervention and preventive care, and where help is available.

There are over 200 diseases that can be called cancer. They have different causes, happen in different tissues, develop in different ways and for different reasons, and demand a variety of treatments.

They all have one fatal element in common. In every case, normal cells have gone wild and lost their normal growth and development.

The 3 classifications of cancer:

Cancer is classified into 3 stages. Cancer in the epithelial tissue (covering or lining of tissue) is called carcinomas.

The 2nd class of malignant tumors is the sarcomas. They originate in connective tissue such as bone and muscles.

Cancer affects nearly each and every part of our body.

There exist over two hundred different types of cancers. Cells in our bodies normally grow, divide, and produce more cells to perform specials tasks.

When these normal healthy cells grow old or get damaged they die and are replaced by new cells to perform the same duties.

The names of many types of cancers are often associated with the organs it affects.

Information on cancer can be obtained from various Health Information Centers and help one in detecting the initial signs of the disease.
