What do you know by cancer- Cancer is the name given to a malignant tumor

The organs and tissues of the body are made up of tiny building blocks called cells. Cells divide and multiply as the body needs them. When these cells continue multiplying when the body doesn't need them, the result is a mass or growth, also called a tumor. Tumors can be either benign or malignant. Cancer is the name given to a malignant tumor. Doctors can tell if a tumor is benign or malignant by examining a small sample of cells under a microscope. Benign tumors aren't cancerous. They can often be removed, and, in most cases, they do not come back. Cells in benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. But malignant tumors are cancerous. Cells in these tumors can invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is called metastasis. Malignant rumors are very dangerous and finally they are likely to take the life of the patient.
