Cancer occurs when abnormal cells multiply uncontrollably (frequently creating tumors) and invade other tissues. Cancer is a broad term as there are more than 100 different types of cancer that originate in various locations around the body and have different progression paths. Cancer begins when mutated cells do not undergo apoptosis as normal cells do--infected cells multiply and spread and do not experience programmed cell death, leading to large amounts of cancer cells in a little amount of time. There are five main categories of cancer: lymphoma/myeloma, leukemia, sarcoma, carcinoma, and central nervous system (CNS) cancers. Treatment of cancer depends on its origin and progression, but many treatment plans include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, and drug trials. Cancer related diseases and conditions may increase risk for or be a symptom of various cancers. Various cancers have specific lists of ailments that qualify them to be considered related diseases and conditions.
