During recent years cancer has become a common disease though no human being wants to think of it.

It has become an important medical concept. There are different types of cancer that are being introduced every day.

Different types of cancer attack patients differently. One of the most devastating cancers is ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer affects women and the symptoms can be severe. It is a silent killer. This cancer attacks the ovaries.

While this type of cancer attacks the cells containing the ovary, it typically grows at such an increased rate and it becomes impossible to control the growth.

Ovarian cancer is a cancerous growth arising from the ovary.

Symptoms are frequently very subtle early on and may include: bloating, pelvic pain, difficulty eating, and frequent urination, and are easily confused with other illnesses.

Most (more than 90%) ovarian cancers are classified as “epithelial” and are believed to arise from the surface (epithelium) of the ovary. However, some evidence suggests that the fallopian tube could also be the source of some ovarian cancers.

Since the ovaries and tubes are closely related to each other, it is thought that these fallopian cancer cells can mimic ovarian cancer. Other types may arise from the egg cells (germ cell tumor) or supporting cells.

A Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes, a type of cell that forms part of the immune system.

Typically, lymphoma is present as a solid tumor of lymphoid cells.

There are two main types of lymphoma: Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (also called Hodgkin’s Disease) and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Both types develop in the lymphocytes or white blood cells that are an important part of the body’s immune system.

The two types have similarities, but there are definite distinctions.

Lymphocytes have two main cell types: B cells or T cells. With lymphoma, either the B cell or the T cell becomes abnormal.

Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that occurs when B or T lymphocytes, the white blood cells that form a part of the immune system and help protect the body from infection and disease, divide faster than normal cells or live longer than they are supposed to.

Lymphoma may develop in the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, blood or other organs and eventually they form a tumor.

Typically, lymphoma presents as a solid tumor of lymphoid cells. Treatment might involve chemotherapy and in some cases, radiotherapy and/or bone marrow transplantation, and lymphomas can be curable depending on the histology, type, and stage of the disease.

Mesothelioma is a silent killer that lies in wait for decades in your body before finally making its presence known and causing fatal results.

It is a form of cancer that is very rare. But since it is so rare, most people have never heard of the disease and its symptoms.

Mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the Mesothelium. The Mesothelium is a protective lining that covers all of the body’s internal organs as well as lines the inside of the abdomen. While it covers all of the organs, the most common organs affected are the lungs and heart.
