What is Cancer? By Vakarė Kuklytė

Print This 🙂

Probably everyone knows cancer. And no, not the one from the anime called Fairy Tail. Yes, I’m talking about the one, that makes many people die every year. Cancer, also known as a malignant tumor or malignant neoplasm, is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.

Cancer has existed all the time, it’s just that nobody knew that. Now, why is it called cancer? It’s because in medieval ages, a doctor saw the cancer, and it looked like crab’s legs to him. You will get cancer mostly by smoking, but you can get it in other ways.

Just be healthy, okay?

Will cancer be cured?
Actually, no one knows when it will be cured, because whenever scientists say, that they made a cure for cancer, and this time it will work because they cured a mouse that had skin cancer, it is most likely to never be heard of again. But there’s a new method to cure cancer, which no one knows if will cure a human and will be successful. It is called nanocure (at least they call it like that for now). So, let’s say how much a one nanometer is. If you put one million nanometers together, it will make a one millimeter. This method is actually confirmed to work in a few countries, because it cured breast cancer, also confirmed in the Philippines that it cured bone cancer, and now it is being tested with other people to cure lung cancer.efg
How does it work?
There are four stages on how does this cure work:
1. Antibodies “unlock” the cell that contains cancer. Doctors inject golden nanoparticles inside your body. On top of those nanothings there are antibodies, that attach into some places of the cell, called “key holes” (I know, that’s a strange name).Later, the cancer cell grab the antibodies and let them inside.
2. Lasers detonate the cell. From the outside, lasers are targeted to the cell. The rays make the golden electrons oscillate in sync, so the metal starts warming up. After a really short wait, the heat makes the gold melt, making the created bubble of gas explode.
3. The cure gets inside through the holes. Outside the cancer cell there are oil capsules, that have cure from cancer inside of them. The power of the gas bubble exploding make the capsules have holes in it, so the cure gets inside through the holes of the cell.
4. X – rays forbid the tumor cells to multiply. The scientists use a really small dose of them, because the nanoparticles make ray stronger. Because of the x – rays, the DNA spiral intertwines and doesn’t let the cancer to multiply and damage the other cells

    Thanks, the article is quite informative, but you forgot to mention that cancer is not just one disease. It is a collection of different genetic mutations, it has many types and stages, that’s why we can’t say that we have or don’t have a cure for cancer. Actually some rear types of cancer are already cured, but you’re wright, that we still haven’t dealt with most of the disease. But I think we can be sure that the cure will be found, it’s just a question of time, and I hope this time will be very short.

    Thanks for the article again.

    • Oh, yeah, I did forget 🙁 I also do hope that the cure will be found as fast as possible. Thank you for the information, I didn’t actually know, that there are some cancer types that are cured 😮 Anyways, if I ever write something about diseases, I will try to find more information, because, as I see, I haven’t mentioned a lot of things actually. Thank you for reading the article 🙂

  2. Great article. My grandpa currently has liver cancer and he’s been fighting it for a year but sadly i don’t know how much does he have left in him because he’s 85 years old :/ Also, you probably could’ve picked some more serious pictures for this article since cancer isn’t something we should associate with comedy but that’s just my opinion.

    • Thank you for the advice (: I just thought that if I picked funny pictures people would look at it from a different angle. But when I read the article again, I think that I shoud’ve made it a bit more serious. But thanks for reading the article and giving me advice on what I should focus on when writing an article 🙂

  4. Wow.. The article is great, pretty informative but I love that you look at this dangerous disease from a different angle, I mean the pictures lol Let’s just hope noone gets the cancer, it seems awful. P.s. I eat most of the spicy foods from the picture and it felt great to find out they prevent cancer:) but I believe it depends mostly on genes.. What’s your opinion?
