Have you ever wondered what IT is? One in four people get's it, one in five dies because of it! I'm sure you're aware of the fact that human body is composed of little elements called cells. The cells divide, die or simply do what they need to do. Sometimes during the division or life of the cell something gets wrong (the cell mutates), but we have different control mechanisms (including immune system) that usually lead this "faulty" cell to it's death. But some of the mutated cells get out of control and start to multiply very fast so that, after a time, they form tumour and spread to other parts of the body. When the disease is advanced - it's lethal. Usually the faster diagnosis, the bigger chances to cure. Time is life, don't waste it!
