♋ What Is the Cause of Cancer?
The world is full of diseases that cause the death to many people, some diseases are contagious, others are genetically transmitted from parents to children and etc. Cancer have been killing many people and has left plenty women with only one breast. What is exactly the cause of the disease called Cancer ?
Cancer has so many reasons. From genetics, to environmental factors. Even some viruses can cause cancer.
Cancer is caused by many factors,namely; biology ,ie family background if one of the parents had the disease,it’s likely that some of the siblings will have some chances of getting the disease.
Eating behaviour commonly junk foods food with high sugar intake ,a lot of fats, refrigerated foods ,soft drinks all increase the risk of cancer.
Like Vahid said – there is no one reason or cause of cancer. That is half the battle, it is something we cant entirely prevent, but we are getting better at curing it.
Absolutely, the causes of cancer are several according to scientific researches.
Cancer is a genetic disease. It means that cancer is caused by the changes in our genes that control how our cells functions, grow and divide. For example, certain genes changes cause the cells to grow faster than normal and become cancer.
These genes changes can be caused by genetic, environment, and behavioral factors. Cancer-causing genetic changes can be inherited from parent. It can also be acquired from health-harming behavior such as smoking, which makes our cells suffer the exposure of harmful chemicals from tobacco. Also, the genes changes can be caused from exposure to radiation.
Cancer is caused by changes (mutations) to the DNA within cells. DNA contains a sets of instructions telling the cell what functions to perform as well as how to grow and divide. An errors in the instructions can cause the cell to stop it’s normal function and allow the cell to become cancerous.
The main cause of cancer is genetic changes (mutations) in cells. Genetic mutations will make cells abnormal. In fact, the body has its own mechanism for destroying these abnormal cells. If this mechanism fails, abnormal cells will grow uncontrollably.
There are so many diseases called cancer. From my little understanding of the cancerous illness, I know there are different types of cancerous sickness and as well different causes. Some cancer hereditary, while some are caused by environmental hazard and eating of junk foods.
I think we all appreciate its a horrible disease and hopefully progress will be made to try and eradicate it from the human race
Cancer is a complex disease with many possible causes, The two main causes are genetic and carcinogens. Smoking and tobacco, diet and physical activity, sun and others types of radiation, viruses and others infection can cause the genes in a cell to become abnormal and tell the cell to grow and divide out of control.
I think cancer can be caused by genetic factors, viruses and unhealthy living habits such as smoking and eating unhealthy foods. Correct if I’m wrong
I respect your point, but I can’t entirely agree with it. I think there are various types of infections, and not all of them lead to cancer. Furthermore, you should mention what kind of infection that lead to cancer. Treatable infections such as Hepatitis B and C could lead to cancer if they were mistreated.
Yes Ahmad, many times we just mention a point that’s hanging and not specific. Sometimes we need to be specific when we mention something.
Anything that can cause body cells to develop abnormally can cause cancer.
Mutation of cells cause the cells to have an abnormal multiplication. Cigarettes, ultraviolet ray can cause the mutation of cells.
I think cancer is caused by many factors, it depends on the type of cancer, for example, what causes blood cancer is quite different from the causes of beast cancer.
The scientists develops all the time new methods in the medical fight against cancer. It is difficult to say what causes cancer. That can be our way of living, environment and the choices we do in life. We have of course also our own genetic heritage.
Hi, Mr Steinar.
You are saying it right. Currently, the scientist is working hard to find both the causes of and the cures for cancer. Even, there is a specific academic journal dedicated solely to cancer study. And that is very respected and reputable journal.
I am not exactly sure what causes cancer but I have had two cancers in the last 11 years and I have been able to survive and tell the story. A doctor told me that everyone has cancer cells running around in their body but not all of these cells attach to something and develop into something that needs to be treated or life threatening.
