Oncology is a specialized medical field dealing with the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care of cancer patients. It is a genetic disease caused by changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow. Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells. Normally, human cells grow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them. When cells grow old or become damaged, they die, and new cells take their place. When cancer develops, however, this orderly process breaks down. As cells become more and more abnormal, old or damaged cells survive when they should die, and new cells form when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form growths called tumors.
