Sintomas De Cancer De Matriz
Tenía un lunar en el lado izquierdo de mi abdomen. Sin querer lo froté contra una pared y el lunar se salió y sangró. Tendré cancer? O Infeccion?
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

. I had an us done and they saw fluid in my cul-de-sac and adjacent to the uterine fundus. Should I be concerned. My sister has ovarian cancer?
More details: You will need to contact the ordering physician and ask for clarification. It is physiologically normal for most women to have some fluid in the cut de sac. You will need to have the doctor interpret your specific sonogram report to find out if yours was normal. If your sister has ovarian cancer you may qualify for BRCA genetic testing. ...Read more

Abnormal growth: Body has capacity to control its growth, maintain cells normal structure & function, have a purpose, will co ordinate with other cells of body, stays with in the confinements like a well trained army, cancer cell does exactly opposite, abnormal cell no control invade and spread to other tissue and cancer cell has no purpose in the body. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Abnormal cells: Quoted from Medicine Net. Com:. "Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and in some places metastasize (spread). Cancer is not one disease. It is a group of more than 100 different distinctive diseases." You can go online and research more about the different types. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Mutated cells: A tumor is a clone of cells bearing genetic mutations that cause inappropriate growth, and that has acquired the ability to induce its own new blood vessels as a new organ would. A cancer is a tumor in which the genome has become destabilized, so it acquires new mutations and eventually gains the ability to invade locally and usually to spread. All cancers will kill if not treated properly. ...Read more
A mutation that grew: A cancer is a mutation that grows fast enough in one's lifetime to cause disease. To reduce the risk of cancer, maintain a healthy weight and exercise. Eat lots of vegetables, some fruits, and limit intake of red meat or burned/charbroiled meat. Avoid smoking, because it increases lung, oral, and throat cancers; plus cervical cancers in women. Wear sunscreen outside to prevent skin cancer. ...Read more
It is a Disease of C: Cancer arises from our body cells when they grow out of control. It is caused be gene abnormalities and manifests as an abnormal lump/Growth in some or any part of your body. If it is not removed, it spreads in the body and can be fatal if not treated promptly. Early diagnosis make a big diffence in outcome ...Read more

In 400 characters!: It is a group of diseases caused by multiple possible factors that lead to abnormal cell behavior. Cancer cells: grow too much, grow faster than normal, do not die when they are supposed to, do not obey the usual restraints that normal cells have, and (this defines cancer) have the ability to spread to other places (metastasis). Prognosis and treatment vary a lot, depends on the kind of cancer. ...Read more
Risk and contributory factors to causing cancers would include genetics/family history of it, excessive exposure to agents- chemicals, pollutants, radiation, biologic,
sometimes, we don't exactly know.
Normal cells would grow, divide and die at an even pace but cancer cells would grow and divide at an alarmingly fast pace that it crowd out and impair the growth of surrounding normal cells. ...Read more
Too many culprits!:
5-10% of the populations have a high risk of hereditary cancer. In addition, our gene is subject to thousands of hits every day, in the air, in the car....food, drinks, smoking, sun exposure, viruses..... to mention a few!
I am surprised that we are still alive! Count your blessings! ...Read more
Genetic mutations: Cancer is clones-within-clones of cells bearing genetic mutations. The factors that really cause cancer (ionizing radiation, mutagenic chemicals, just dumb luck from random genetic errors) mutate genes or else cause massive cell turnover to allow selection for mutant clones. Bogus / political claims (cell phones, bad thoughts, GMO food, power lines) don't do this & ultimately get discredited. ...Read more
Complicated Answer: Cancer is just an umbrella where more than 100 different cancers fall under. Each is diagnosed and treated differently. Prognosis is dependent on type of cancer and in stage at time of diagnosis for other cancers. Some can be cured ei: testicular cancer others you can't ei: cll. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
