Our bodies are made of billions of cells that are programmed to grow, divide, and die over time. When any cells don’t die, it can cause cancer. Cancer is a group of genetic disease caused by uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in the body. It can be inherited from our parents or result from DNA damage during a person’s lifetime. The type of cancer depends on where it’s located and type of DNA damage done. There are over 100 forms of cancer.
