What is cancer?

Cancer is a group of more than 100 different diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled, it can result in death.

When should I get tested for cancer?

Recommendations for the types of screening tests and the ages you should get them vary according to cancer type. So, it’s a good idea to have a conversation with your doctor about what type of test you might need and when.

Is cancer contagious?

No. Cancer isn’t like the flu or a cold. You can’t catch cancer from someone who has the disease.

Can cancer be cured?

Yes. When cancer treatment appears to be working, your doctor might say the cancer is in remission. A partial remission occurs when the cancer shrinks but doesn’t disappear. A complete remission means there is no longer any sign of cancer.
