Cancer Causes

There is not possible a single cause of any disease. Cancer is a group of 200 diseases in which the cells of body become abnormal and being out of control. Before describing the main causes of the cancer I am first defining in short the various types of cancer.

Types of cancer :

  • Breast Cancer
  • Brain Tumor
  • Bone Cancer
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Anal Cancer
  • Appendix Cancer
  • Gastrointestinal Cancer
  • Head & Neck Cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Lung Cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Skin Cancer
  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma
  • Causes of cancer :

  • Tobacco
  • Tobacco is the main cause of cancer. Cigarette smoking also comes in this category.
    Smoking can cause cancers of the lungs mouth, throat, bladder, kidneys and several other organs. According to the records smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths in the U.S.

  • Drinking of alcohol
  • Drinking a lot of alcohol also been increase a person’s chance of getting cancer of the mouth cavity, throat, and some other organs.

  • Sun Exposure
  • Ultra Violet rays are the main cause of skin cancer. Sun burn and UV rays can damage your skin and this damage can lead the skin cancer.

  • Genetics
  • If your family belongs to any kind of cancer history, it means you need to extra precautions because genetics plays very important role for many hereditary cancers,
    And their may a grate chance of them to develop in your body. Breast cancer genes The BRCA1 and BRCA2 are examples of genetic predisposition.

  • Infectious diseases
  • Viruses are also cause of some cancers. The main viruses which affect the human cancer are hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human papillae virus.

  • Environmental Factors:
  • Today’s environment is so stressful that most people are affected by a depressed immune system. Various immune problems you can face such as allergies, asthma, yeast infection, frequent cold and flu etc which may cause of cancer of various categories.

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Harmonic imbalance is also a big cause of cancer. Hormone imbalance is a type of allergic reaction which promotes the “endometrial” cancer.

  • Unsafe Sex:
  • Unsafe sex can increase your risk for human papillae virus infection. If one has more the one sex partners then the possibilities of cancer in the uterus increases. Researchers also think during the oral sex the same case can be drawn to tonsil cancer.

  • Age Factor
  • Various types of cancer become when a person get older. That’s cause is the changes that cause a cell to become cancerous in the first place take a long time to develop. There have to be a number of changes to the genes within a cell before it turns into a cancer cell. The changes can happen by accident when the cell is dividing. Or they can happen because the cell has been damaged by carcinogens and the damage is then passed on to future ‘daughter’ cells when that cell divides.
