Chickens and cows also are affected by cancer. It is important to know that cancer does not spread by eating or touch. It is not an infectious disease. But it is necessary to maintain hygiene and eat well cooked food so that other infections are avoided.

MS ( General Surgery)

What is cancer? in the most basic terms, cancer refers to cells that grow out-of-control and invade other tissues. Cells become cancerous due to the accumulation of defects, or mutations, in their dna. Certain inherited genetic defects (for example, brca1 and brca2 mutations) and infections can increase the risk of cancer. Environmental factors (for example, air pollution) and poor lifestyle choices -- such as smoking and heavy alcohol use -- can also damage dna and lead to cancer. Most of the time, cells are able to detect and repair dna damage. If a cell is severely damaged and cannot repair itself it undergoes so-called programmed cell death or apoptosis. Cancer occurs when damaged cells grow, divide, and spread abnormally instead of self-destructing as they should. Cancer symptoms and signs there are more than 100 different types of cancer. Every cancer and every individual is unique. The symptoms and signs of cancer depend on the size and location of the cancer as well as the presence or absence of metastasis. Symptoms and signs such as fever, pain, fatigue, skin changes (redness, sores that won't heal, jaundice, darkening), and unintended weight loss or weight gain are not unique to cancer, but they often occur with cancer. More potential cancer signs and symptoms include the presence of a lump, difficulty swallowing, changes or difficulties with bowel or bladder function, persistent cough, hoarseness, and unexplained bleeding or discharge.

I have undergone surgery surgery for prostrate 10 yr ago. When can I start normal life and exercises.Please tell.
Hello, although your question is not clear but if its only few days passed after the surgery and if there is pain and swelling in that area then you should take rest and avoid exercising. If its been many months after operation then you can do exercising and follow a normal routine life. Take care.

Falling of hair is not the symptom of cancer. It can be caused by some chemotherapy drugs, which is also temporary. Cancer can present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding from anywhere, weight loss, abnormal bleeding or periods etc it depends on area effected. As a female you should go for monthly self breast examination five days after the periods are over and be aware of any abnormal symptoms which is not going after routine medication then you must consult your doctor.
