Hello Kirana,


Cancer is a condition in the body where malignant cell growth occurs. These malignant cells have the ability to damage cells in the body. The cause of cancer is due to gene mutations that occur due to several possible causes. The exact cause of the emergence of cancer is difficult to know but is said to be related to genetic factors or due to exposure to substances that are carcinogenic.

air pollution
radiation
cigarettes

chemical material
