Organ Specific Cancer

Sub-Track:

Different malignancies can be found in different places of the human body depending on which organ is affected. Depending on the degree and cell proliferation, the signs, symptoms, prevention, pain, and treatment may differ.
Breast Cancer: Breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies diagnosed in women. It is a steroid hormone–dependent tumour that is primarily dependent on both oestrogen and progesterone hormones, and it has the ability to boost both normal and malignant breast cell proliferation.
Malignant disorders of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and accessory organs of digestion, such as the oesophagus, stomach, biliary system, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus, are referred to as digestive/gastrointestinal cancer.
Endocrine cancer is caused by aberrant cell development caused by a change in DNA, which results in the formation of a tumour. The majority of endocrine tumors/adrenal tumours are non-cancerous, although a small percentage will develop into malignancy. Thyroid, adrenal, pancreatic, parathyroid, and pituitary cancers are the most common endocrine cancers.
Neuroendocrine cancer is a type of cancer in which neuroendocrine cells release hormones into the bloodstream in response to a signal from the neurological system. Neuroendocrine tumours produce higher-than-normal levels of hormones.
