Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is responsible for about 10 million deaths in 2020, or about one in six deaths.

Some common types of cancer are breast, lung, colon and rectum and prostate cancers.

In general, cancer is a disease where some cells in the body grow abnormally and spread to other parts of the body. It drives the growth of tumors, some of which are curable, while others are life-threatening.

There are various mutable and non-mutable risk factors for cancer.
