Cancer is a disease in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (Neoplasm), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood). Most cancers form a tumor but some, like leukemia, do not. The branch of medicine concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer is oncology. Cancer Screening, Early Cancer Diagnosis, Surgical excision as well as Chemotherapy and Adjuvant therapy treatment are all part of current efforts towards a better prognosis. Vedic Astrology can contribute significantly towards these efforts of cancer diagnosis and treatment by analyzing the individual horoscope to identify cancer potential as well as age timing at which cancer is likely to emerge.
