Cancer can be defined as uncontrolled growth of the cell. Cancer starts when cells grow out of control and outnumber normal cells. Uncontrolled growth of cell leads to the formation of the tumor which can interfere with the nervous, digestive, and circulatory systems. Tumor cell releases hormones that alter body functions.
