A tumor may be diagnosed as benign or malignant. A benign tumor is not cancerous as it does not multiply or spread and usually can be easily removed without the possibility of recurrence. On the other hand, a malignant tumor is cancerous. A malignant tumor never stops growing and can spread to other parts of the body in a haphazard and uncontrolled way through the blood or lymph system, forming lumps or tumors in the body.
Even after millions of researches and studies, the definite causes of cancer remain fairly unknown. However, there are certain substances, known as carcinogens, that increase the chances of cancer in people. For example, people who smoke or chew tobacco are more prone to mouth, throat and lung cancer. Continued irritation of tissues can also lead to cancer. Pollution, preserved/packaged food, smoked and junk food are also known to put people on high risk of developing various kinds of cancer. Even certain viruses can cause cancer (EBV, Hepatitis B, HPV). Asbestos, arsenic, pitch, tar, ultraviolet rays are also amongst other known causes for cancer.
Chemotherapy is primarily given to shrink the size of tumor(s), slow down the cancer’s growth, to keep the cancer from spreading to other areas, relieve diseases related symptoms, and prolong the patient’s survival. It is one of the most effective ways of treating many different types of cancer. The underlying principle of chemotherapy is to kill the cancer by treating them with chemicals that interfere with the process of cell division. However, in the process, the healthy cells are also harmed, especially those that divide quickly. Harm to healthy cells is what causes side effects like loss of hair, blackening of nails, etc. Usually, these cells repair themselves after chemotherapy.
