Cancer is not just one disease, but a large group of almost 100 diseases. Its two main characteristics are uncontrolled growth of the cells in the human body and the ability of these cells to migrate from the original site and spread to distant sites. If the spread is not controlled, cancer can result in death. Cancer can involve any tissue of the body and have many different forms in each body area. DNA damage is a cause of Cancer. DNA can be damaged by replication errors, x-rays and certain chemicals. As mutation accumulates over the lifetime of a cell it changes its traits and after the accumulation of a certain set of hallmarks or traits, the cell can become cancerous. Based on the decades of researches and evidence based analyses Scientists has identified 6 hallmark features responsible for the separation of tumour cell from its non-malignant counterparts and 2 additional hallmark features and 2 enabling characteristics aid in the carcinogenesis process.
