Autoimmunity and Malignancy

Cancers are a large family of diseases that involve abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. A tumor is a group of cells that have undergone unregulated growth, Cancer, also known as a malignant tumor or malignant, is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumor does not spread to other parts of the body. Possible signs and symptoms include: a new lump, abnormal bleeding, a prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements among others. The development of cancer and autoimmunity can be seen as a failure of the immune system to control tumour cell growth and to regulate Auto reactive responses, autoimmunity and host anti-microbial immunity are inextricably linked, as effector responses that cause inflammatory tissue damage are the same ones that mediate effective host defence.

Cancers cells can also spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. There are several main types of malignancy. Carcinoma is a malignancy that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs. Sarcoma is a malignancy that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue. Leukemia is a malignancy that starts in blood-forming tissue, such as the bone marrow, and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.
