Enjoy! And for those of you who have no idea what cancer is..


Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. In the body, there are trillions of cells with various functions. These cells grow and divide to help the body function properly. Cells die when they become old or damaged, and new cells replace them.

Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and cells grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells. These extra cells may form a mass of tissue, called a tumor. Some cancers, such as leukemia, do not form tumors.

There are five main categories of cancer:

Carcinomas begin in the skin or tissues that line the internal organs.
Sarcomas develop in the bone, cartilage, fat, muscle or other connective tissues.
Leukemia begins in the blood and bone marrow.
Lymphomas start in the immune system.
Central nervous system cancers develop in the brain and spinal cord.
Cancer can occur anywhere in the body. In women, breast cancer is most common. In men, it’s prostate cancer. Lung cancer and colorectal cancer affect both men and women in high numbers.

I hate Cancer. I'm scared to click the link because last time I clicked one, I had to reset my Whole iPad2...

It goes straight to youtube, And its a song, Dont worry.

How is cancer treated?

The same cancer type – whether it’s liver cancer, stomach cancer or kidney cancer – in one individual is very different from that cancer in another individual. In fact, cancer is not one disease but hundreds of different types of diseases. Within a single type of cancer, such as breast cancer, researchers are discovering subtypes that each requires a different treatment approach.

Treatment options depend on the type of cancer, its stage, if the cancer has spread and your general health. The three main treatments are:

Surgery: directly removing the tumor
Chemotherapy: using chemicals to kill cancer cells
Radiation therapy: using X-rays to kill cancer cells
The goal of treatment is to kill as many cancerous cells while minimizing damage to normal cells nearby. Advances in technology make this possible. For example, intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) delivers a concentrated dose of radiation to a tumor site immediately after surgery. Healthy tissues and organs are shielded during treatment, which allows for a higher dose of radiation.

In recent years, doctors have been able to offer treatment options based on the genetic changes occurring in a specific tumor. An innovative new diagnostic tool, the genomic tumor assessment, examines a patient’s tumor genetically to help identify mechanisms that may be responsible for the cancer's growth. Genomic tumor assessment can result in a more personalized approach to cancer treatment.

Hopefully we can find a cure one day, but there are treatment options too.

My dad has cancer but i think hes still gonna live awhile before it gets him so I'm not so worried about it at the moment.
