Cancer

Cancer is a debilitating disease that takes the lives of many people every year. It is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.

These cells can spread to other parts of the body and invade healthy tissues, which can lead to serious health problems and even death. Early detection and treatment of cancer are critical to improving chances of survival.

Around one-third of cancer deaths are due to the five most common types of cancer: lung, colorectal, stomach, liver, and breast cancer.

Cancer treatment often involves surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Newer types of treatment, such as immunotherapy and targeted therapy, are also being developed.

Cancer research is constantly striving to improve treatment options and find cures for this disease.

Treatment plans vary depending on the type and stage of cancer, as well as the person's overall health and preferences.

But with advances in medical technology and treatment options, more people are surviving cancer than ever before.
