The Possibility Of Being Exposed To Two Types Of Cancer At The Same Time?
Hello, r nDok, what if a person has two types of cancer at once?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cancer is another term for a malignant tumor. This cancer occurs when there are cells that proliferate excessively, abnormally, and out of control. The cause is due to mutations in DNA, which is a material that regulates the properties and workings of each cell found in the cell nucleus. These DNA mutations are often the exact trigger unknown. However, the following factors can increase the risk of DNA mutations that lead to cancer formation, including:
Genetic (inherited, hereditary) Exposure to mutagens, for example smoking, radiation, viruses, or other chemicals Obesity Chronic inflammation (inflammation) Inadequate physical activity Impaired immune system, for example due to HIV / AIDS, steroid drugs, etc. There are many a type of cancer that can grow in the human body. And everyone can get 1 type of cancer, or more. Cancer can also experience metastasis, which is spread to other organs around it, either through percontinuit (spread to adjacent areas), hematogenous (through the bloodstream), or lymphogen (through the lymph flow). However, the spread of cancer cells to other organs does not necessarily change the name of the cancer. For example, patients with uterine cancer who experience bone metastases are not necessarily said to have uterine cancer and bone cancer.
That's the explanation from us. For more details, please consult directly with the nearest doctor.
I hope this helps.
