1/ Εξ αφορμής της #WorldCancerDay σήμερα, να πούμε 2 πράγματα για τον καρκίνο γιατί έχω βαρεθεί να λέει ο καθένας ό,τι του κατέβει και να τραυματίζει ακόμα χειρότερα ψυχολογικά τους ανθρώπους που παλεύουν με την αρρώστια.
2/ Τι είναι καρκίνος;

Καρκίνος είναι ο ανεξέλεγκτος πολλαπλασιασμός ανώμαλων κυττάρων του οργανισμού. Ένα κύτταρο αλλοιώνεται για διάφορους λόγους (θα αναφέρω μερικούς), οπότε αρχίζει να πολλαπλασιάζεται ανεξέλεγκτα και να γεμίζει τον τόπο με πανομοιότυπα παθολογικά κύτταρα.
3/ Αυτά τα ανεξέλεγκτα κύτταρα μπορεί αργότερα να μεταναστεύσουν σε άλλο σημείο του σώματος. Αυτό ονομάζεται μετάσταση. Ο οργανισμός έτσι θα γεμίσει με όγκους, οι οποίοι τρέφονται από τον άνθρωπο έως ότου τον εξαντλήσουν και πεθάνει.

Fam! We hope y'all are doing great.

We're sorry for not posting any thread yesterday. We had a little issue but it's resolved now.

It's Day 4 of our #CancerAwareness thread. We've learnt what cancer is and how it grows.

We've also learnt about the types of tumours and today...
We'll be talking about the different types of cancer.

There are five main types of cancer ♋ but do you know what determines the types? The cells in which they grow.
Don't get it twisted. This is different from the types of tumours we talked about earlier.

#WorldCancerDay
1. Carcinoma.

This type of cancer starts in the epithelial cells (this is the layer of cells that protects🛡️organs). Carcinomas may invade ☠️ other tissues and organs and move to the lymph nodes and other areas of the body. This invasion is known as metastasis.
