Cancer is one word that comprises hundreds of different cancers.
Cancer – and the treatment of it, called oncology – is a vast topic for many reasons. Firstly, cancer is unique to each person. Not only are there “subtypes” of many cancers, but cancer varies by its location in your body and its rate of growth.
