Steroids and Cancer

Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Each type of cancer is unique with its own causes, symptoms, and methods of treatment. Lung cancer was the most common cancer worldwide in men contributing nearly 17% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2012. The top three, lung, prostate and colorectal cancers, contributed nearly 42% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).Approximately 2% to 3% of women in the United States will develop cancer of the endometrium at some point during their lives.

Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer based on the type of cell that is initially affected. Unlike regular cells, cancer cells do not experience programmatic death and instead continue to grow and divide. According to the American Cancer Society, Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US and accounts for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths.
