What is Cancer?

Defining Cancer

Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade

other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer.

Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that

begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer that begins in basal cells of the skin is called basal cell

carcinoma.

Cancer types can be grouped into broader categories. The main categories of cancer include:

  • Carcinoma - cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs.

  • Sarcoma - cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.

  • Leukemia - cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.

  • Lymphoma and myeloma - cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.

  • Central nervous system cancers - cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.

Origins of cancer l.jpg
Origins of Cancer

  • All cancers begin in cells, the body's basic unit of life. To understand cancer, it's helpful to know what happens when normal cells become cancer cells.

  • The body is made up of many types of cells. These cells grow and divide in a controlled way to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. When cells become old or damaged, they die and are replaced with new cells.

  • However, sometimes this orderly process goes wrong. The genetic material (DNA) of a cell can become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division. When this happens, cells do not die when they should and new cells form when the body does not need them. The extra cells may form a mass of tissue called a tumor.

Symptoms of cancer l.jpg
Symptoms of Cancer

Cancer is a broad term that encompasses over one hundred different types of cancer. Although each type has its own set of

characteristics, there are some cancer symptoms that occur in many types of cancer. It is important to note that some types of cancer do not present

any symptoms until they are in advanced stages. This is why cancer screening and risk assessment are vital for cancer prevention and early detection.

Symptoms of Cancer

A broad spectrum of non-specific cancer symptoms may include:Persistent Fatigue: Fatigue is one of the most commonly experienced cancer symptoms. It is usually more common when the cancer is advanced, but still occurs in the early stages of some cancers. Anemia is commonly the culprit -- a condition that is associated with many types of cancer, especially types affecting the bowel. Fatigue is a symptom of both malignant and non-malignant conditions and should be evaluated by a physician. Unintentional Weight Loss: While it may be a welcome surprise to lose weight without trying, it can be a red flag for many illnesses, including cancer. Losing 10 pounds or more unintentionally definitely warrants a visit to the doctor. This type of weight loss can occur with or without loss of appetite. Remember, weight loss can be a symptom of cancer, but is also a symptom of many other illnesses, too.

  • Pain Typically, pain is not an early symptom of cancer, except in some cancer types like those that spread to the bone. Pain generally occurs when cancer spreads and begins to affect other organs and nerves. - Lower pack pain is cancer symptom that is associated with ovarian cancer and colon cancer. Shoulder pain can also be a symptom of lung cancer. Pain in the form of headaches can be associated with brain tumors (malignant and benign). - Stomach pains can be related to types of cancer, like stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, and many others. Stomach pain can be a very vague symptom because so many illnesses can cause stomach pain.

  • Fever: A fever is a very non-specific symptom of many mild to severe conditions, including cancer. In relation to cancer, a fever that is persistent or one that comes and goes frequently can signal stress on the immune system. Fevers are commonly associated with types of cancer that affects the blood, like leukemia and lymphoma, but are also common in people whose cancer has spread. Bowel Changes: If you experience constipation, diarrhea, blood in the stools, gas, thinner stools, or just a general overall change in bowel habits, see your doctor. These symptoms are most commonly associated with colon cancer, but are also related to other cancer types. Chronic Cough: A persistent, new cough or a cough that won't go away or becomes worse needs to be evaluated by a doctor. Blood and/or mucus may accompany the cough and can be caused many conditions. In relation to cancer, a chronic cough with blood or mucus can be symptom of lung cancer.

Lead healthy lifestyle to reduce risk of cancer

(Published on Monday, March 1, 2010 – The Brunei Times)

BRUNEIANS have been urged to lead a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risk of cancer and

advised to seek treatment as soon as possible.Dr Hj Muhd Syafiq Abdullah, oncology specialist at the National Cancer Centre said that cancer can be prevented if treated early, adding that if a person who came in during stage one, there is still high chances of survival."From 2004 to 2008, cancer has been the number one killer next to heart disease. We can reduce the risk of cancer by a change of lifestyle," he said in his presentation"Cancer Prevention".

He added: “Be good to yourself, take healthy diets and do a lot of exercises, don’t smoke, those who drink alcohol should do so in moderation and reduce exposure to the sun as this can also cause skin cancer.”

Head of Research and Evaluation Section of the Health Promotion Centre Dr Pg Hishamuddin Pg Hj Dato Paduka Badaruddin said that cancer has always been pictured as suffering, but it could still be prevented.
