Cancer

Εγγραφή στο Ροή Cancer
Cancer is a condition where cells in a particular part of the body develop and reproduce uncontrollably. The cancerous cells can invade and destroy neighboring healthy tissue, including organs. There are over 200 various types of cancer, each with its method of diagnosis and treatment. In many cases, your symptoms will not be related to cancer and will be caused by other, non-cancerous health conditions.
