A tumor condition could be benign or malignant depending on whether they retain at their origin and are not cancerous as they do enlarge but do not spread or can spread and affect the parts/ locations other than the place of origin respectively. Thus while discussing cancer; the malignant tumors are of concern largely. They characteristically spread through circulatory options (metastasize) and loose the support growth thus can enlarge and divide irregularly with lesser utilization of growth factors. The diagnosis of cancerous behavior is thus based on the outcome of invasion by malignant tumors to various places in the body. Blood counts, X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, endoscopies are the commonest examining tools. On detection of doubts, biopsy is done to obtain the tissue samples for tests. Diagnosis detects and tells the staging of cancer in the body at the time of detection.
The past and present research works have developed considerable treatment opportunities for curing cancer if detected at an early state and depends on the location as well. The treatments are more of specific for an individual rather than being generalized and designed by careful observations through team of diagnostics. Surgeries of the oncogenic tissues, chemotherapy and radiation therapy or a combination are the widely used treatment measures for fight against tumor entities. The therapy opted for patients who cannot be cured of cancer but to let them lead a life with less suffering is the Palliative therapy whereby medicinal care is used to reduce the disease symptoms. The cancer patients surviving the treatments and ridding the cancerous tissue of their torso might experience outcomes like fatigue, nausea, hair loss, insomnia. It is then the duty of the surroundings thereby to let the fighters survive with confidence and satiation!
