What is Cancer?
Cancer is the name of a disease where some of body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into the surrounding tissues, according to the National Cancer Institute. Cancer can take place almost anywhere in the body. When damaged or abnormal cells divide they can form solid tumors. Additionally, Leukemias are cancers of the blood and do not form solid cancer tumors. Cancer tumors are malignant and can spread into other human tissues. Conversely, benign tumors do not invade nearby tissues. If you would like to speak with an experienced Allentown cancer attorney, call the Trapani Law Firm anytime for a free cancer consultation.
