Cancer! • Uncontrolled cell growth. • Often results in a tumor which is a large mass of cells. • Tumors cause the tissue it is located in to stop functioning correctly. They can also impair the function of surrounding tissues. • Cancer cells can be ‘benign’ or ‘metastatic” • Benign cancers are isolated to one area of the body and curable. • Metastatic cancers spread throughout the body and are difficult to cure.
