Cancer cell

Despite the nasty consequences of cancer cells, they certainly can be beautiful.

Cancer involves abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Cancer is a group of diseases with over 100 different types.

There are about 14 million new cases of cancer per year globally causing about 8 million deaths – 15% of all deaths.

Treatment for many forms of cancer has improved exponentially over the last few decades, decreasing the number of deaths caused by cancer.¬†Because cancer is is a group of diseases it is unlikely there will ever be a single “cure”.
