Cancer - Basics

Cancer occurs when cells develop abnormal growth cycles and extra cells build up to create a mass of malignant tissue, called a tumor. These cancerous cells can spread to other organs—a process called metastasis—by breaking away from the original source and entering the bloodstream or lymphatic system. Cancer is the result of a change in the genes that control cell growth and death, and may be linked to certain hereditary conditions or lifestyle factors.
