What is cancer?

Cancer is a broad term that describes a large number of conditions where abnormal cells in your body start growing uncontrollably, and they can sometimes then invade and damage healthy tissues. Cancers are one of the leading causes of death in Australia. Certain cancers can be prevented; for many others, early detection and treatment will allow you to live with them for many years.
