Cancer is the broadly defined term that encompasses all sorts of growths, tumors, and other problems within the body that can either be malignant or benign, or typically grow with little sign of symptoms or issues. It is a very common, and increasingly growing problem across the country and the world as we learn more about what cancer is and what it looks like.

This disorder affects millions and millions of Canadians, and is a widely known and widely contested disease in terms of non-profit work and awareness being done to raise the visibility of certain cancers. Medical doctors and oncologists disagree widely on what causes cancer, as well as what will be a viable solution for it, though radiation treatments to kill cancerous growths have had significant success across time with various patients.


A wide range of issues and problems causes cancer, and it can be very difficult to ascertain why and what causes cancer. Genetically speaking, it is something that may be passed down generation to generation within a patient’s gene pool. That is, if a patient’s grandmother had breast cancer, it is more likely that the patient will also experience it similarly, for example.

Related, though, are the environmental causes of cancer, which can vary wildly from technological issues like cell phones causing brain cancer, to lifestyle and diet issues like obesity-related problems causing colon cancer. Generally speaking, very healthy people have less of a chance of being diagnosed with cancer, though that is not always the case as various cancers affect various groups and types of people equally.


Symptoms of cancer vary greatly, and largely depend on what type and severity of it a patient experiences, but generally speaking there are certain commonalities among all cancers. First, the presence of lumps in certain areas may indicate this, as lumps typically form into cancerous growths whether benign, or malignant.

Other than that, though, it can be difficult to detect preemptively through symptoms, and it is necessary to get regular screenings for issues like breast cancer in women to truly detect and preemptively battle and kill this disease.

Cancer is something that affects millions of people, whether as patients themselves, or as the friends and family member of patients. It is a difficult disease to battle, and can be a very significant and life-changing event for people who take on the battle. Nevertheless, good medical care and quality doctors and oncologists can go a long way in winning the battle with cancer once and for all.
