Cancer

Cancer is the abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth in a person’s body. Cancerous, or malignant cells divide too quickly for your body to respond and fight off these cells. Cancer can manifest itself almost anywhere in the body, therefore symptoms vary depending on what type of cancer a person has developed.
