There are many different types of cancer, which are treated differently according to the type. However, all cancer begins with abnormal cell development and growth. Although most cancers are in the form of tumors, not all tumors are cancerous and not all cancers form tumors. Some cancers are passed through genetics while others originate from lifestyle habits.
