Cancer

Cancer is disease in which the cells of the body become abnormal and multiply without control. There are more than 100 types of cancer cells in the world. Most cancers are named after the organs affected.

Benign tumours are not cancerous :

They can be removed and do not invade any other tissues.

Malignant tumours are cancerous :

They divide abnormally and spread to other parts also. 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 suportive 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.

Metastasis

Cancer cells may invade near by tissues and can spread through the blood and lymphatic streams to other parts of the body also. This is called as Metastasis. When the DNA gets damaged or changed mutations happen, and this will lead the cells to multiply abnormally instead of getting died off. The risk of developing many types of cancer can be reduced by healthy lifestyle habits. This includes eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and not smoking. The other reason are occupational hazards, infections, radiations, sun exposure, exogenous hormones etc. Also, the early detection of a cancer and treatment, the chances are there for the treatment to be successful.

Cancer stem cell

The scientists are believing that the cancer treatment is always not fully successful as the oncologists are not able to treat the root cell, the single that initiates the mutation. This is why the cancer almost always relapses.

Stem cell therapy for Cancer

The search for cancer cure has been going on for a long time. One of the greatest achievements is the stem cell therapy in treatment and cure of the disease. Stem cell therapies have been shown to improve the body’s ability to withstand devastating chemotherapy and radiation treatment therapies that may kill the cancer cells, but also damage and destroy healthy cells in the body at the same time. Many stem cell therapies help to boost up anti-tumor immunity that may very well inoculate the individuals from further cancers in the future. The stem cell research and its positive sides are still ongoing. The Stem cell therapy after the usual cancer treatments has been proved very beneficial.
