Cancer is an often fatal disease, caused by damage to human cells so that they replicate uncontrolledly and do not respond properly within the host organism. It has many forms, according to where in the body it manifests. It can spread throughout the body, for example through the bloodstream.

Prevalence

Its rate has been increasing worldwide.

Causes

Cancer stems from damage to healthy cells. A chemical which can cause such a chance is referred to as a carcinogen. Ionising radiation is another potential cause of such damage. Iraq has the highest rates of cancer in the world (all types except for liver cancer), concomitant with use of depleted uranium by occupying forces.[citation needed]

Treatment

Radiation and or drugs are often used to treat cancer. The latter (chemotherapy), it was discovered in 2017, "can increase aggressivity in cancer, causing malignant cells to migrate and triggering more dangerous tumors — thereby also increasing the disease’s fatality".[1]

Alternatives to radiation or chemotherapy include curcumin, which is reported to have cured myeloma.[2]
