Understanding Cancer

Hello everyone! We hope you are well and ready to learn something new today. We are going to talk about a very important, but sometimes misunderstood topic: cancer. Don’t worry, our goal is to make it simple and understandable.

What is Cancer?

First, let’s understand that cancer is not a single disease. It is a group of diseases, more than 100 in total, that have one thing in common: the abnormal growth of our cells1.

Our body is made up of millions of cells that perform various functions. Normally, these cells grow, divide and die in a controlled manner. However, when we have cancer, this process gets out of control. The cells begin to grow and divide without stopping, forming masses of tissue called tumors2.

Types of Cancer

There are many types of cancer. Some of the most common are breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. But let’s remember, each type of cancer is different and affects the body differently3.

How to Prevent Cancer?

Not all forms of cancer can be prevented, but there are many things you can do to reduce your risk. Some of the most important include not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, protecting yourself from the sun, and getting regular checkups4.

Keep a Positive Attitude

Understanding cancer can be overwhelming, but let’s remember that every day medical advances offer us more hope. Many types of cancer can now be prevented, detected early, and treated successfully.

Always keep a positive attitude and remember that you are in control of your life and your health. Early detection and a healthy lifestyle are our best weapons against cancer.
