Cancer refers to uncontrolled and abnormal cell growth, which may have more than 250 different forms. The cells develop into a lump (or tumour) which may be malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous).
Malignant cells spread (metastasize) to adjacent tissues or throughout the body via the Lymphatic System. Benign tumours remain localised and may disappear of their own accord (spontaneous remission) or become malignant.
With the popularity of outdoor pursuits in sunny climates, there is an increase in the incidence of Skin cancer over the years. Lung cancer is most often the result of Smoking cigarettes, as well as exposure to other forms of environmental pollution. Colon cancer seems to be directly related to the modern diet. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in American women and is the leading cause of death during middle age.
Due to the serious nature of the condition it is better to visit a health professional for personal advice on nutritional support.
