During my internet research, I found thousand websites that offer a detailed description and useful information about cancer. The only drawback is that you must be a medical student, or a doctor, so you can understand those articles. But, people who are reading this, aren’t doctors, so there should be an article who is easy for reading and understanding. This troubled me, so I decided to have interviews with several doctors, and to write a simple and basic article about cancer.
Every single cell in our organism is programmed! This means that every cell know what its purpose is and when it will die. This is written in the DNK. Every day, millions of our cells ‘’decide’’ that they don’t want to do their ‘’job’’ so they change the DNK. For example a lung cell decides it wants to become a bone cell, so it starts reproducing itself for that purpose. These are cancer cell! Our immune system is a great defense mechanism, almost perfect, and it will destroy every single cancer cell. Only one of those cells is enough for starting a cancer! This means that cancer cells will start reproducing so fast and starting to make tumors. They can be benign, there is no danger from them, and malignant tumors that are known as cancer! Cells from malignant tumors will spread across our body and make tumors everywhere they can, destroying our organs. Although, our medicine is advanced, there is no cure for it!
Chemotherapy may be the best solution, but it is dangerous, because it kills cancer cells and our cells! And again, if only one cancer cell survives, cancer will develop again. Scientists think that free radicals are causing cancer!
