Cancer is a term given to a collection of diseases that impair the normal function of the body. The common between all types of cancer is that some of the body’s cells begin to divide haphazardly and metastasize (i.e. spread to other body parts). All of your cells divide to maintain the normal physiology of your body, but the problem starts when some cells don’t die when they become nonfunctional or when new cells form where they are not needed.
These cells are normally killed by your immune system to avoid further problems. However, when these cells escape from the immune system, in most of the cases, they form growths that are known as tumors. Some other cancers don’t form growths but have a more widespread effect (e.g. leukemia). Tumors can be benign: don’t spread to other tissues. Others can transform into malignancies: the invasion of nearby tissues or the detachment of the cancer cells from their place of origin to travel to other tissues and divide there.
The diagnosis of cancer and the specification of its type are very precise tasks that need a lot of experience and a significant amount of knowledge.
About 30% of people with cancer come to us with false diagnoses by the doctors in their countries, because of the lack of modern equipment or expertise. Nonetheless, using the latest equipment in the world, Tour for Cure expert oncologists with their extensive knowledge and decades of training, solve this hard task of confirming the diagnosis and following the subsequent protocols, seamlessly.
