What is Cancer

Cancer is a group of diseases a name given by the father of medicine Hippocrates as cancer cells Cancer cells infiltrate the surrounding tissues; the tumour with its finger like projections gives the appearance of a crab. Cells are basic units of our body and they have a lifecycle, cells grow and divide to form new cells grow old have normal wear and tear and then die making way for new cells, when this normal lifecycle of cell is interrupted, old cells stop dying and new cells keep forming, these extra cells keep growing or dividing without stopping and take form of a tumour or masses of tissues.
