    About Cancer

    Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells. Cancer cells are often shaped differently from healthy cells, and they reproduce rapidly, forming tumors, despite signals sent from the body to stop.

    Cancer and Genetics

    The human genome contains many types of genes that control cell growth. When these genes have an error in their DNA, they may not work properly. Cancer can develop if many gene errors occur.

    Cancer Diagnosis

    After your cancer diagnosis, everything in life may suddenly feel out of control. Your initial thoughts may be "How could this have happened to me?" and "How will I get through this?"

    Cancer Treatment

    The goals of cancer treatment are to get rid of the cancer; prevent it from recurring; prolong life, and, if necessary, provide palliation, or easing of symptoms to improve quality of life.

    Living With Cancer

    Newer tests and cancer treatments have added many months and years to people's lives. As a result, cancer is increasingly viewed as a long-term chronic illness.

    Cancer Tests and Procedures

    Doctors use tests like mammography, MRI, and CT scans to help them screen for, diagnose, and treat cancer. If you have cancer, you may have had one or more of these tests.

    Cancer and Nutrition

    Making careful food choices will help support your immune system's fight against cancer. The foods you choose to eat during treatment will vary according to any side effects you may have.

    Cancer Treatment Side Effects

    Cancer treatment can cause a number of side effects. Learn how to cope with fatigue, loss of appetite, skin problems, and more.
