In this article we are going to discuss Cancer, its types and its natural prevention.


The uncontrolled division of cells that spreads to nearby tissue is called as Cancer. Cancer is also known as Malignancy. Some types of cancer cause slow division and cell growth while other cause faster cell growth. Visible growth of some type of cancer is known as tumors. Cell death is a type of beneficial and natural phenomenon known as Apoptosis. All cells have their own and specific function. After death, the body can exchange it with newer cells to perform better functions. Cancerous cells have deficiency of constituents that commands them to die or to stop dividing. As a result, cancerous cells develop in the body, using nutrients and oxygen that would generally maintain other cells. Tumors can be formed by cancerous cells that damage the immune system, that retard the body from proper functioning. Cancerous cells may arise in specific areas, and then develop via lymph nodes. The process by which cancerous cells spread from one part of the body to another is called as metastasis. There are 100 types of cancer that affect humans. Some most common types of cancer are Breast cancer, Lung cancer, Skin cancer, Prostate cancer, colorectal cancer etc.

Classification of Cancer

Cancer is classified on the basis of the tumor cell type and origin of tumor. Classification includes:

  • Sarcoma: Sarcoma is the type of cancer derived from connective tissue. Two main types of sarcoma are, bone or soft tissue sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcoma can grow in soft tissues such as blood vessels, fat, muscle, nerves etc. Examples are Osteogenic Sarcoma, Chondrosarcoma.
  • Leukemia or Lymphoma: When there is abnormal growth of lymphocytes or White blood cells it is known as Lymphoma. It is the type of blood cancer. Lymphocytes are responsible to protect the body against infection. Examples are Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
  • Carcinoma: Carcinoma is the type of cancer derived from epithelial cells. This type covers many of the most common cancers like, Lung, Prostate, and Breast etc.
  • Blastoma: It is the type of cancer generated by malignancies in precursor cells. Some most common Blastoma type cancers are, Retinoblastoma, Nephroblastoma.
  • Germ cell tumor: It is a neoplasm developed from germ cells. Germ cells normally occur inside the testis and ovaries. Example is Teratomas, Germinomas etc.

Natural Prevention of Cancer

A little alteration in diet and lifestyle may reduce the risk of cancer. Some of these are:

  • Avoid the use of tobacco: Smoking is related to various types of cancers such as, throat, mouth, lung, kidney and larynx. Tobacco contains more than 250 harmful chemicals, out of these more than 70 chemicals may cause cancer. Munching of tobacco has been related to cancer of pancreas and oral cavity. Exposure of secondhand smoke and third hand smoke may also increase the risk of cancer.
  • Reduce the extra weight and be physically active: Excess weight on all sides of the middle could enhance the chance of cancer, especially of the colon, uterus, esophagus, breast and pancreas. Substances that are released from fat cells increase the growth of cancer cells. Various physical activities such as aerobic activity, running, outdoor games etc. plays an important role in our life. Include at least one hour of physical activity in your daily routine.
  • Minimize exposure to sun: Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Ultraviolet rays of sun may cause skin damage, which results to enhance the risk of cancer. Some tips to prevent the risk of cancer:
  1. Avoid the exposure to mid day sun (10 am to 4 pm).
  2. When you’re outdoors, wear loose fitting clothes that cover the whole exposed area.
  3. Use of broad spectrum sunscreen with Sun Protection factor (SPF).
  4. Avoid sunlamps and tanning beds.
  • Practice Safer Sex: Reduce the number of sexual partners and always use latex condom when you have sex. Several types of infection may occurs due to unprotected sex such as HIV (Human immune deficiency virus) OR HVP (Human papilloma virus). HIV is most often associated with cancer of liver, lung and anus. HVP is related with cervical cancer.
  •  Sharing of needles also may cause hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, which can enhance the risk of liver cancer.
  • Reduce the consumption of alcohol: Alcohol is related to cancers of breast, mouth, esophagus, liver and others. Heavy consumption of alcohol enhances the risk of cancer.
  • Maintain a healthy diet: A small change in diet plan may reduce the risk of cancer. Always eat an appropriate quantity of fruits and vegetables. Because they are highly rich in fiber and nutrients. Some examples are Broccoli, Cabbage, and Brussels sprouts etc. These all healthy substances protect our cells against DNA damage. Consumption of processed meat can also enhance the risk of cancer because it contains nitrates which may be associated with cancer.  Avoid high calorie food items such as fat from animal resources and refined sugar etc.
  • Avoid toxic chemicals: Weed killers, insecticides are easily available in every home. These products contain harmful toxic chemicals. These harmful toxic chemicals damage DNA in your cell and enhance the risk of cancer.
  • Get Vaccinated: Vaccination of various viral infections may reduce the risk of cancer. Some Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines prevent cancers of the anus, vagina, cervix and vulva. Hepatitis B vaccine decreases the risk of liver cancer.


As we see that how modern aspects of modern lifestyle disturbs our health in hazardous manner. Modern medicines have surgical procedures to treat the cancer, but it also has its own side effects such as reoccurrence of cancer. So prevention is always better than cure.
