The aim of my study is to research about cancer. Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide frantically and destroy body tissue. Now-a-days, the mortality rate due to cancer has increased tremendously worldwide. So my objective is to provide statistics about the types of cancer, causes of cancer, signs of cancer, the number of death of cancer patients, the number of cancer patients who are in serious condition an about the cancer treatment to raise awareness among the mankind and to reduce the number of deaths from cancer. The incidence of cancer a cancer types are influenced by many factors such as age, gender, race, local environmental factors, diet and genetics. More than 100 types of cancer have been identified so far. They are classified according to their function and location of the cells from which they originate. By 2020, it is estimated that 70% of all cancer cases will be in the lower income countries and approximately one-fifth of this will be in India with its population of over a billion. While research is necessary to inform efficacious programs, it is also time for us to move beyond research to act by implementing programs in cancer prevention and treatment. Cancer is disturbing our growth economy causing more people to death, so my study takes a step to prevent cancer by exploring about cancer and providing information and treatments to eradicate and to create awareness among mankind.
