What Is Cancer?

Cancer is an umbrella term that describes more than 100 types of diseases. To better understand it, it helps to learn more about how your body works. Your body is made up of many kinds of cells that divide and reproduce as old cells die off. When cancer begins, it is because deformed cells multiply and spread and can invade other parts of the body and replace healthy cells with cancerous ones. These cells typically form a mass of body tissue called a tumor. Without treatment, cancer progresses and the malignant (cancerous) cells can pose a serious threat to life as they invade nearby organs and tissues or spread to distant locations throughout the body.

How Is Cancer Treated?

At Henry County Hospital, we use a variety of therapies in an attempt to shrink cancer or halt its progression. Our board-certified oncologists specialize in the treatment of cancer by employing various methods to treat cancer, from surgery to chemotherapy (“chemo”) and radiation therapy. These 3 gold-standard anti-cancer treatments are used either to remove cancerous cells or stop them from spreading.
