Modern Cancer Treatment

Cancer is a disease that can develop in a particular part of the body and can grow, divide and re-divide. Some forms of Cancer can spread from one part to another part of our body. Breast cancer cell spreads to liver through blood circulation and forms liver cancer. Though, it is called breast cancer. Some cancers are occurred genetically. Because, due to damage of DNA the normal cells of our body develops cancer cells. People can inherit damaged DNA from their parents. Some cancers can occur by some external factors like excessive smoking, exposure of excessive sunlight, taking lots of fatty diet etc.

On the other hand, some cancer forms tumors and grows rapidly which life is threatening. Again, leukemia, blood cancer is very dangerous and bears costly treatment. But, if cancer is identified at the earlier stage, it can be easily treatable and patients can survive for many years.
