Cancer is the uncontrolled and uncoordinated growth of body cells which invade surrounding normal tissues and might spread to distant organs if not checked in time
Cancer is caused by damage to the DNA (genetic material) within our cells. Damage to the DNA happens in all normal cells, but the majority of this damage is repaired by our own body. Sometimes this damage is not repaired properly, which can lead to changes in the properties of the cell (for example cells may acquire the ability to grow and divide rapidly). Accumulated DNA damage can eventually lead to cancer
Cancer per-say is not an infection. However, long-term infection with some pathogens can cause cancer. For example, infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) can cause cervical cancer, infection with hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus can cause liver cancer, and persistent infection of gastric mucosa by Helicobacter pylori can cause stomach cancer. Epstein Barr virus (EBV) has been linked with lymphomas, nasopharyngeal cancers and some stomach cancers. However, most people infected with these cancer-causing pathogens never develop cancer
Cancer can affect physically fit individuals as well as individuals in poor health. People who are very immunocompromised (e.g. individuals infected with HIV, or on immunosuppressive therapy) have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancers. However, most cancers are caused by a combination of factors that may include tobacco use, alcohol use, your genetic makeup, poor diet, physical inactivity, being overweight, and exposure to chemicals
