This is the most common form of cancer treatment and the most widely known therapy across non medical professionals or patients, however very few know the truth and the process of this therapy. Chemotherapy is used to cure and control the symptoms of cancer. Successful treatments destroy cancer cells and they are no longer detected in the patient’s body with chances that they will not grow back. This treatment also helps in preventing the cancer cells from spreading to different parts of the body. It also helps in palliative care since this therapy helps in shrinking the tumors that cause pain and discomfort.
The National Institute of Cancer states that “Cancer is the name given to a collection of related diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues”.
Cancer is a genetic disease and it is caused by changes to the genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide. Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from parents. They can also arise as a result of certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun etc.
