Overview

The uncontrolled proliferation of aberrant cells in the body is defined as cancer. Cancer occurs when the body's usual regulatory mechanism fails. Old cells do not die but instead proliferate uncontrollably, creating new, aberrant cells. These excess cells can combine to form a mass of tissue known as a tumour. Some malignancies, like leukemia, do not produce tumours. Here we’ve described how cancer starts and grows. Keep reading to learn more.

How does cancer grow?

Cancer cells' gene mutations disrupt the cell's normal instructions, causing it to grow out of control or fail to die when it should. Cancer cells behave differently than normal cells, allowing them to spread. Cancer cells differ from normal cells in the following ways:

  • The out-of-control division
  • These cells do not perform specific functions.
  • Avoid using the immune system.
  • And these calls may not adhere well to one another and can move to other parts of the body via the blood or lymphatic system.

How do they spread?

Cancer cells can spread to adjacent tissues and structures as a tumour grows in size by pushing on normal tissue near the tumour. As cancer cells proliferate, they produce enzymes that break down normal cells and tissues. Local invasion of invasive cancer refers to cancer that spreads into neighbouring tissue.

Cancer can also spread from the site of origin to other sections of the body. This is known as metastasis. When cancer cells break away from the tumour and go to a new area in the body via the blood or lymphatic system, they are said to metastasize.

What do you mean by cancer stage?

Your doctor will most likely define your cancer in terms of its stage. The stage of your cancer can inform you and your medical treatment team a lot about your disease, including:

  • The severity of cancer
  • Treatments that are appropriate, including any clinical trial choices
  • Possibility of recovery following therapy
  • The likelihood of the malignancy recurring (recurrence)
  • Your care team may need to do specific tests to identify the stage of your cancer, such as computed tomography (CT) scan or a biopsy.

Not all malignancies are staged using the same system. The most typical, however, involves the following stages:

  • Stage 0: Cancer cells persist in the same location where they began. This is also known as cancer in situ, as it has not developed or disseminated.
  • Stage 1: Cancer has not spread to neighbouring organs.
  • Stage 2: Cancer has spread to adjacent tissues and perhaps lymph nodes.
  • Stage 3: Cancer has progressed to adjacent tissues and may have spread to lymph nodes, but not to distant portions of the body.
  • Cancer has spread to other sections of the body or organs at this stage. This is also referred to as metastatic or advanced cancer.
  • Some malignancies may also be graded, which explains how distinct diseased cells appear under a microscope when compared to healthy cells.

Is there any cure for cancer?

Many types of cancer can be cured with treatment. However, cancer that has been assumed to be treated can reoccur even years later. This is why some doctors prefer to refer to cancer as being in remission. Remission means that the signs and symptoms of an illness (such as cancer) are less severe or have totally disappeared.
