Human Body is made of cells which form the tissues and organs. Every human cell has a predefined life and before a cell dies it creates another cell of the same type. This process is called division of cells. Every cell of our body has a character of its own which defines the functions that the cell is going to perform in the body. Chronic Irritation of these cells makes them to change their character and they start multiplying rapidly. This Rapid and uncontrolled division of cells is called Cancer. When any cell of the human body starts multiplying at a very rapid pace they form a tumour in some organ of the body. These rapidly multiplying cells need lots of food and therefore the food which the person is eating starts going to the cancerous cells and this results in weight loss of the patient which is a very important symptom of cancer in the body. Since cancers are caused by the change in the nature of the cells, genetics plays a very important role in its origin. Lots of cancers are very strongly genetic while the others are caused due to the environmental factors. Most of the cancers would be caused by the combination of `Tendency' and `Environment' where tendency stands for heredity.
The cancers are mostly classified in the form of the organ in which they originate. If the cancer spreads to other organs then it is termed as Metastatic. The most common types of cancers are :
Breast Cancer - Mostly found in women but men may also suffer from breast cancer.
Brain Tumour - Tumour inside the Brain
Oral Cancer - Cancer of the tongue or mouth
Throat Cancer - Larynx, Thyroid or Esophagus
Lung Cancer - Mostly associated with Smoking
GI Cancer - Gall Bladder, Pancreas, Spleen, Stomach and Intestine
Renal Cancer - Cancer of Kidney
Prostate Cancer - Most common cancer in men
Ovarian Cancer - Common in Women
Uterine Cancer - Cancer of the Uterus in women
Cervix Cancer - Common in women
Cancer has mainly 3 types of treatments - Chemotherapy, Surgery and Radiotherapy. These treatments are given by different specialists. While Chemotherapy is given by Medical Oncologists, Radiotherapy is given by Radiation Oncologists through the use of a machine called Linear Accelerator. The best and most successful treatment for Cancer remains surgical excision of the tumour. If the cancer is restricted to one organ of the body then the surgeon removes the cancerous part and reconstructs the remaining organ so as to protect the functioning of the organ. In Surgical Oncology different surgeons would perform different surgeries. Our Neurosurgeons treat the brain and the spinal tumours, Hepato Biliary Surgeons take care of all cancers of the Gastrointestinal Region. Urologists treat the kidney and prostate cancer while General Surgeons operate on breast tumours.

During and after the treatment some of the tests are repeated to observe the effect of the treatment on the cancer and to also check any recurrence of the disease.
