Some information about cancer

The abnormal growth of cells is known as cancer. The healthy cells in our bodies divide and replace themselves in a controlled fashion. If a cell gets altered, it starts to multiply uncontrollably. This is when cancer starts developing. A cluster of such abnormal cells forms a tumour. An important fact is that not all tumours are cancerous although most cancers form tumours. The other parts of the body are not affected by benign or noncancerous tumours and they also do not create new tumours.  A cancer specialist in Kolkata treats the tumours, which are malignant and cancerous, outnumber healthy cells, interfere with body functions and draw nutrients from body tissues. The malignant cells travel through the lymphatic or blood vessels and ultimately form new tumours in other body parts. Through a process called metastasis or by direct extension, cancer continues to grow and spread.

Carcinoma, sarcoma, melanoma, lymphoma and leukaemia are the major types among cancer. The top 10 oncologists in Kolkata provide the best treatment for these cancers. The different organs and glands including skin, lungs, breasts and pancreas are the areas where carcinomas originate. The cancers of lymphocytes are called lymphomas and cancer of the blood is called leukaemia. The soft or connective tissues of the body including bone, muscle, fat, blood vessels and cartilage are the areas where sarcomas develop. The skin cells are where melanomas develop.
