Cancer 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 tumors do not spread to other parts of the body.
Every woman’s body undergoes some slight changes during their period but it is important that women should be attentive to changes that are odd and mysterious. Even though a lot of routine checkups can point to the presence of cancer in the body, women should look beyond the results of checkups and more closely at what their body is telling them.
