Cancer is a term for diseases that develop when abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and may eventually progress to invade nearby as well as distant tissues (known as metastasis). Most cancers occur sporadically; however, some individuals may develop cancer as a result of a genetic change, also known as a pathogenic variant.
Tumors can affect various parts of your body. Determining where the cancer began and if it has spread is key to providing you with effective treatment options.
Leukemia and lymphomas require appropriate testing and expertise to determine how the cancer affects you.
