In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumors, which may invade nearby parts of the body.

Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not invade neighboring tissues and do not spread throughout the body. There are over 200 different known cancers that affect humans.The causes of cancer are diverse, complex, and only partially understood.
