Cancer is a group of diseases that are characterized by abnormal cell growth. Normally your body grows new cells when and where they are needed, and old cells that are no longer needed die. With cancer these natural processes don’t work as they should: new cells form where they are not needed, old cells don’t die – a tumor is beginning to form. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. A lot of them can be treated and have a pretty good prognosis. However, early detection and early beginning of treatment is still crucial. If you suspect that you might have cancer or if you present risk factors that are associated with one or more types of cancer, a thorough examination by SALAMTK specialist is the right choice.
