Cancer, Its symptoms and prevention

Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits),  invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood). Most cancers form a tumor but some, like leukemia, do not.

Symptoms -(Cancer symptoms can be divided into three groups)
 1.  Local symptoms
  • Unusual lumps or swelling (tumor)
  • Hemorrhage (bleeding)
  • Pain and/or ulceration
  • Compression of surrounding tissues may cause symptoms such as jaundice (yellowing the eyes and skin)
2. Symptoms of metastasis (spreading)
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Cough and hemoptysis
  • Hepatomegaly (enlarged liver)
  • Bone pain
  • Fracture of affected bones and neurological symptoms. Although advanced cancer may cause pain, it is often not the first symptom.
3. Systemic symptoms
  • Weight loss
  • Poor appetite
  • Fatigue and cachexia (wasting)
  • Excessive sweating (night sweats)
  • Anemia and specific paraneoplastic phenomena
