Cancer Health

Cancer Health: An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize or (spread). Cancer is not only one disease, but a group of more than 100 different diseases. Cancer can involve any tissue of the body and have many different forms in each area. Most cancers are named after the cell or organ where they start. If a cancer spreads (metastasizes), the new tumor bears the same name as the original (primary) tumor.�Cancer is the Latin word for crab. The ancients used the word to mean a malignancy, doubtless because of the crab-like tenacity a malignant tumor sometimes seems to show grasping the tissues it invades. Cancer may also be called malignancy, a malignant tumor, or a neoplasm (literally, a new growth). The frequency of a specific cancer may depend on gender. For example skin cancer�is the most common type of malignancy for both men and women. The second common type in men is�prostate cancer�and for women is breast cancer. Cancer frequency does not equate to cancer mortality. Skin cancers are curable. While lung cancer�is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States today. Benign tumors are not cancer and malignant tumors are cancer. Cancer is not contagious. Cancer Health, In patients experience significant dynamic physical, psychosocial, and financial challenges. With the increasing number of patients with early stage cancers transitioning to survivorship, there is a critical need to address health promotion and overall well-being.�For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900
