A cancer diagnosis is life changing, not only for the patient, but for their entire family and loved ones. Cancer involves abnormal cellular growth that can manifest as a tumor which can spread throughout the body. Cancer can affect many parts of the body and while genetics may play a role in those at risk, the disease is largely considered environmental.
There are two types of tumors-benign and malignant. The former is not cancerous and not at risk of spreading. These once removed typically are not a risk of returning. The latter, however, is cancerous and is a risk to grow out of control and spread to other parts of the body and multiply. Depending on the severity of the cancer, radiation treatment, chemotherapy and surgery may be used to treat the patient. These options carry lasting side effects such as fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain and bowel issues that can make normal day to day activities difficult.
