Registering your Child’s Birth

In the human body, cells multiply and reproduce in a steady and controlled manner. Cancer is caused by abnormal cell reproduction in the body, with potential to invade surrounding parts and spread to other parts of the body. This uneven multiplication can cause clusters of cells known as tumors. Tumors can be cancerous in nature or benign. Not all tumors are cancerous in nature. When they are not cancerous in nature, tumors tend to stop reproducing cells in abnormal patterns. They also don’t spread to other parts of the body.

However, when the tumor is cancerous in nature, it affects bodily functions, nutrient intake and suppressing of healthy cells. Cancer also causes tumors to spread to different parts of the body. Learn more about cancer symptoms and causes through this article.
