Causes And Treatment Of Cancer Due To Genetic Makeup?
Is there a genetic genetic cancer?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cancer or malignancy, is a condition when there is body tissue that grows too fast, and does not function as it should. This damaged tissue can spread to other parts of the body, and cause various important organs in the body to decline in function, even not working at all. So far there are so many types of cancer in each organ, such as the brain, eyes, nose, skin, bones, digestive tract, breast, and many more.
Regarding your question, no one knows what makes a person experience cancer. But the first suspicion is precisely genetic. That is why one of the factors that increases a person's risk for developing cancer is when a family member experiences a similar complaint, because this is indeed influenced by genetics.
In addition to genetics, other factors that also increase a person's risk of cancer are smoking, radiation exposure, alcohol use, pollution exposure, sun exposure, and can still be more diverse when viewed one by one from the type of cancer. For example, for cervical cancer, the risk factors will increase if someone is infected by HPV. However, HPV infection does not affect the increased risk of eye cancer. Then for anal sex, this can increase the risk of anal cancer, but does not affect the increased risk of skin cancer.
So the point is, it is still unknown what causes cancer for certain, because not always people who have these risk factors will get cancer and vice versa, who do not have any risk factors are not necessarily free from cancer. What is clear, to distance ourselves from it, we must always implement a healthy lifestyle whenever and wherever we are. So, hopefully answering your question.
