Cancer is mainly that form of a disease in which uncontrolled division of cells takes place. I.e. The cells are able to divide in an out of control manner and also make damage to other healthy cells. Let us understand in a better way. Our body is formed of the numerous cells and the growth and development of the body depends upon the pattern of division of cells. Our body cells mainly follow the pattern to grow, divide and die, which is controlled by a regulatory machinery present inside the cell ie. DNA. It works from very preliminary stage when baby is inside the womb, at that time the process of cell division is very rapid in order to give the growth to baby child but after attaining the adult hood it becomes slower just for the replacement of old cells or repair of worn out cells.
CAUSE OF CANCER: As the cell growth is regulated by DNA so any modification or damage in the DNA sometimes causes the uncontrolled division of cells. Due to which the cells with damaged DNA keep on divide and takes the form of cancer by making lumps of cells called tumor. This damage of DNA may be inherited from generation to generation or it may also caused due to the exposure of toxins presents in the environment like as the tobacco smoke.
