Cancer is a disease characterized by a rapid and uncontrolled abnormal cell division. Cancerous cells have ability to invade other surrounding tissues too. Cancer cells can travel from the tissue of origin to other tissues through blood and lymph system. When cancer cells spread from the tissue of origin to other tissues, it is called metastasis. Metastasis makes treatment of cancer difficult. A cancer detected in early stage has better chances of being cured. Unfortunately cancers are rarely detected in early stages. There are more than 100 types of cancers affecting human body. Cancer can be broadly divided in sub categories depending on the tissue of origin. The major categories of cancer are:
Carcinoma: Cancers that start in inner lining or skin covering the internal organs. There are many sub types of carcinomas like adenocarcinoma ,basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma.
Sarcoma: that starts in cells of bone, cartilage, muscles, fat, blood vessels or other supportive and connective tissues.
Leukemia: cancers that start in bone marrow and are characterized by presence of large numbers of abnormal blood cells.
Lymphoma and Myeloma: These cancers start in immune system of human body.
CNS Cancers: cancers that start in central nervous system, i.e. brain and spinal cord.
