THERE ARE VARIOUS TYPES OF CANCER
Cancer is a collective term that encompasses many different diseases that behave quite differently. Cancer derived from the same organ can behave in completely different ways in different patients. That is why cancer treatment is always selected individually for each patient.
Different forms of cancer organised on the basis of their location or manner of growth
Usually, cancer is not hereditary, with heredity only explaining 5–15% of all forms of cancer. The vast bulk of cases of cancer are the result of factors that have caused cell mutation. These factors include radiation, some viruses, toxins in the environment, tobacco and obesity. In Finland, cancer is the second biggest killer after diseases of the cardiovascular system. Over 20,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
