Cancer is the abnormal growth of cells, which may be benign or malignant that spreads or occupy near-by tissues. As these tumors grow, some of the cancer cells break and move to distant places in the body through circulating fluids (blood & lymph). Uncontrollable growth of cells and division which they get easily invaded in to other cells or tissues of the body resulting in modifying a healthy cell to cancer cells. The agents that cause cancer are said to be carcinogens. The cancer cells present in the body do not die and leading to formation of excess cancer cells in the body resulting in forming mass of tissue, called tumor. Benign tumors don’t invade or spread to other tissues. In case of malignant tumors these invade and spread to other parts of the body rapidly.

The most prevalent cancers in the world by comparing to the men and women are lung cancer is the most prevalent cancer of all the cancers. The most common cancers occurring in men are lung cancer, prostate cancer and Colo-rectal cancers occupying about 43% of the cancers occurring in men. The other common cancers in men are stomach and liver cancers. In case of women most common cancer in the world is breast cancer of about 25% of cancers that are occurring in women are breast cancers. Next to the breast cancer Colo-rectal cancer, lung cancer and cervical cancer are most prevalent in women. The common reason behind cancer is physical carcinogens, chemical carcinogens and biological carcinogens. Usage of tobacco and alcohol consumption is the main common cause of lung cancer.

Stage of cancer can be described by the extent of growth of cancer and based on size of cancer. Stage of cancer can be found be found by performing the tests. By these tests we can know even the extent of spread of cancer and how far it has spread to other adjacent organs. Staging of cancer should be clearly understood by the doctor so that the type of treatment to be given could be easily known. If the cancer is present at only one place then treatment like surgery or radiotherapy is sufficient to get rid of cancer completely. If there is spread of cancer to adjacent organs then the treatment to be given in such a way that it circulates the whole body. There will not be correct identification of cancer sometimes then doctors check the lymph nodes present near to the cancer for the presence of cancer cells, it is the sign that indicates that the cancer has begun to develop body.

Changes that occur in DNA with in the cells leads to cancer. DNA present in the cell is packed into huge number of individual genes; each of the individual genes contains a set of instructions that are to be performed by the cell. If the changes occur in the instructions, then it alters the cell function and makes the cell cancerous.
Changes in behavioral and environmental characters also cause changes in the body’s cells which converts the healthy cells to cancer cells. 90-95% cancers are due to environmental factors and some cancers are due to inherited genetics. Cancers are also caused due to changes in the life style, economic an behavioral characters and also due to pollution. Environmental factors that contribute to increase mortality rate of cancer patients includes tobacco, diet and obesity, infections, radiation, stress, lack of physical activity and pollution. Agents that have been linked to cause of cancers are said to be carcinogens. About 90% of lung cancers are due to smoking. Tobacco smoke also causes cancer in larynx, head, neck, stomach, bladder, kidney, esophagus and pancreas. Lung cancer and mesothelioma also can be caused due to inhaling tobacco smoke, asbestos fibers and leukemia from exposure to benzene. Absence of physical activity also contributes to causing cancer not only due to body weight also due to effects of immune system & endocrine system. I take of high salt food leads to gastric cancer. 18% of cancer deaths are due to infectious diseases. Human papilloma virus causes cervical cancer and hepatitis B and C virus causes hepatocellular carcinoma. 10% of cancers are due to exposure to radiation like ionizing radiation and non-ionizing ultraviolet radiation.

Signs and symptoms of cancers depend on the type of organ affected, size of the tumor and extent of cancer invaded. As the size of the tumor increases it pushes the nearby organs, tissues, blood vessels and nerves. Signs and symptoms of cancer cannot be found out every time, it depends on the type of organ affected, and some of the organs affected by cancer don’t show any signs and symptoms. Cancer in pancreas doesn’t show any signs and symptoms till most of the organ is affected and has even invaded the adjacent organs. Tumors may grow around the bile duct and resist the flow of bile. Then signs and symptoms include eyes and skin looks yellow. By that time of detection of pancreatic cancer, it would be in an advanced stage

Natural medicine aims to restore body’s ability to protect, regulate and heal itself. This looks at your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It is also called as phytomedicine, phytotherapy or botanical therapy. Alternative therapy that is followed by the cancer patients is herbal medicine.

Cancer can be managed based on stage of cancer, extent of spread of cancer and performance of cancer patient. Cancer treatment is the complete uptake of cancer from the body without showing affect to rest of the organs in the body.
For the effective therapy the treatment programs should ensure timely and equitable access. Critical step in the management of cancer is to establish the diagnosis based on pathological examination. Tumor sample can be achieved by biopsy or aspiration which may also require an intervention such as image guided procedure or endoscopy.

High- energy radiation is used in radiation therapy in order to shrink (reduce) the cancer cells or kill the cancer cells. X-rays, gamma rays and charged particles are the radiations used for cancer treatment. Radiation is sent to the body externally called external-beam radiation therapy and if the radiation comes from radioactive material placed in the body near cancer cells it is called internal radiation therapy or brachytherapy. Radioactive iodine that travels in the blood to cancer cells is systemic radiation therapy. More than half the amounts of people receive radiation therapy sometime at the course of treatment. Radiation therapy is done by damaging the DNA of cancer cells, in which it can damage the DNA directly or create free radicals within the cells that can in-turn damage the DNA.
Radiation oncologist’s plans a patients treatment through a process called treatment planning, that begin with simulation. At the time of simulation detailed imaging scans show the location of the patient’s tumors and the normal adjacent areas. There is different scanning equipment for treatment planning in radiation therapy.

Immunotherapy also said to be biologic therapy is a cancer treatment designed to boost the immune system to fight against cancer. It uses substances that are in the body or in the laboratory to improve or restore immune system function.
When there is any entry of foreign organism in to our body then body’s immune system detects the harmful organism and produces antibodies. Antibodies fight against infection. Monoclonal antibodies can be made in the laboratory. Monoclonal antibodies can be used for targeted therapy to block an abnormal protein in cancer cell.

Some breast cancers are caused due to the hormones in blood. It is a form of systemic therapy it not only reaches the cancer cells present in breast also reaches cancer cells all over the body. Hormonal therapy is recommended for women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancers, it is not useful for the women who are suffering with hormone receptor-negative breast cancer.
Hormonal therapy is often used as adjuvant therapy to reduce the risk of cancer coming back. Sometimes this therapy is started as neoadjuvant therapy. The drugs that stop estrogen from affecting breast cancer cells are,
