Oncology is a branch of science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of malignancies (cancer). Cells of the body have a highly regulated system that control their growth, maturity, reproduction and subsequent death. Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. While there are many kinds of cancer, all of them start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.

Here are some general symptoms of cancer, though, having any of these does not mean that you have cancer â€“ many other illnesses too can manifest these symptoms. Though, if you have any of these symptoms for a long time or see them getting worse, please consult your physician.
This simple â€œC.A.U.T.I.O.N.â€ reminder can help identify symptoms of the disease so that you can protect your health and the health of your family:
C: Change in bowel or bladder habits
A: A sore that does not heal
U: Unusual bleeding or discharge
T: Thickening or lump in the breast or elsewhere
I: Indigestion or difficulty in swallowing
O: Obvious change in a wart or mole
N: Nagging cough or hoarseness
If you persistently suffer from any of these symptoms you should see a physical to rule out cancer. However, if you do have cancer, the sooner you get a diagnosis - and start treatment - the more your chances for recovery improve.
