What is a tumor anyhow?

Tumors are basically a growth of tissue in or on the body that have no physiological function. Tumors generally come from a rapid proliferation of cells. Malignant tumors are a growth that lead to physical deterioration or death. Cancer metastasis it the process whereby tumors, like lung cancer tumors for instance, invade another body system, like the bone, and then have the potential to invade yet other tissues, like the brain, liver, intestines and etc. Tumors do not cause death unless and until they interfere with critical body functions or causes secondary septicemia (blood poisoning) that the immune system is too weak to fight. Many deaths attributed to cancer mortality statistics are actually caused by radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments. Chemotherapy alone accounts for 25% of all “cancer deaths”.
