, in simple words is the uncontrolled division of cells. Human body is made of millions of cells.

Now, in this process of removal of old cells and coming of new cells, if there is any blockage which leads to no death of old cells and the new cells keep pouring in, it’s called as cancer. Our body organs, from top of our body to the toe of the body, have particular amount of cells that constitute their size. If these cells keep forming without the removal of older cells than the size and the function of the particular organ gets disturbed and finally it fails to operator leading to dire consequences.
