Cancer is one of the major reasons for death in both men and women worldwide. According to World Health Organization, cancer is known to be the second leading cause of death across the world.
Cancer is uncontrolled cell division. It has the ability to spread to different parts of the body causing destruction of normal body tissue, tumor formation, damage to the immune system, and other impairments that can be fatal. Cancer leads to the transformation of normal cells into tumor cells. It is a multi-stage process ranging from pre-cancerous lesions to malignant tumors. The main causes of cancer are physical carcinogens (ultraviolet and ionization radiation), chemical carcinogens (nicotine, aflatoxin, arsenic, etc.), and biological carcinogens (infection due to bacteria or viruses).
