Types of Cancers
A disease called cancer affects mostly the cells of our bodies. Our cells behave abnormally when they are affected by this disease like diving themselves too quickly or in an incorrect manner. The cells look different under microscope than the way they are supposed to when they divide themselves in an incorrect way. Many parts of our body can be affected by cancer. The most affected regions are lungs and breasts. Cancer is of different types and even how to treat them is different. These days, thyroid cancer is growing to be a threat. Thyroid cancer come in two different forms. The two types of thyroid cancers are papillary and follicular are the common ones amongst others. The two cancers are different because even the symptoms, treatment methods and survival rates are different.
To know more about cancer, a research about it is done by an instituted called the national cancer institute. The institute has a list of the most common cancers starting with breast cancer. The most feared disease that people fear is breast cancer because they get diagnosed with it every year. It is common to many people especially women which makes it be known by almost everyone. Breast cancer draws a significant amount of attention in the media, and fundraising efforts. Breast cancers have some other subtypes of cancers.
Examples of subtypes of breast cancer are ductal carcinoma, invasive lobular carcinoma and inflammatory breast cancer. All these types of cancers are treated using different ways because they affect different parts of our bodies. The lungs cancer is the second most common type of cancer. Lung cancers affect only our lungs and bronchus. Also, lung cancer is divided into other subtypes. Three of the most common lung cancers are non-small cell carcinoma, small cell carcinoma and lung carcinoid tumours.
Non-small lung cancer is the one that is a common type of lung cancer. Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. Most of the victims end up dying which makes the disease deadly disease. Most of the victims with prostate cancer end up also dying which makes the disease to be a threat. This type of cancer has some subtypes like lung and breast cancer. Survival chances of prostate cancer are high if prostate cancer is found at an early age.
Cancers are different because there is another one called colorectal cancer. The two different types of this cancer are the colon cancer and rectal cancer. The two parts of our bodies that colorectal cancer effects are the colon and rectum. If not treated using the right methods, this type of cancer can be a threat and even cause deaths. Surgery will not be used as a treatment method if this cancer is found at an early age.
