When some cells in our body grow without control and invade surrounding tissues, it is called cancer. Cancer cells can spread from one part of the body to a distant part, if treatment is not done.
There are no organs or body parts that are completely safe from cancer. Cells in the body are always dividing, and when cell division occurs, there is always the possibility of excessive cell division, that causes cancer. Body parts like breasts, lungs, colon, brain, bones and prostate are commonly affected by cancer, whereas cancer in the heart, appendix, spleen or placenta are extremely rare.
Anyone can get cancer. It affects people of all ages, including children. However, the risk increases with age. Nearly 9 out of 10 cancers are diagnosed in the 50s and older age group.
