Cancer is a condition where the body's cells begin to divide without stopping. It easily spreads into surrounding tissues too. Our body has trillions of cells, and cancer can begin anywhere in our body. Normally, human cells begin to grow and divide to form new cells since our body needs them. This orderly growth is disturbed when a person has cancer. The cells begin to grow and divide uncontrollably when a person has cancer.
