Oncology and Cancers

Oncology is a branch of medicine that involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cancer is a class of diseases which are  characterized by uncontrolled cell growth with the potential to spread to all other parts of the body and leads to formation of lumps or masses of tissue called tumours (cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream, only in the case of leukemia). Tumours grow very rapidly and interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems and release hormones that fluctuate the function of the body. Cancer is the major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and accounts for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths in US.  Some of the tumour cells does not spread all over the body but they grow uncontrollably and are called benign tumour. Normal or healthy cells control their growth and when they become unhealthy, they are destroyed by themselves. A medical professional who practices oncology is known as oncologist.
