Cancer is not really a single disease, but rather a group of diseases. A common trait of these diseases is that they all cause the spread and uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.

These factors could interact in ways that have yet to be explained by medical science and can include such things as genetics, diet, personal habits, age, race, and sex.
