I have heard a lot about cancer,  about the prevalent cases in Africa and all over the world and how it affects the family and friends of the infected. 

The disease which is seemingly fatal and can also result from the transmission of STDs. It is seemingly a terminal disease although there's a possibility of survival. But what is Cancer? This disease is so popular yet so many know so little about it, all we know that it is disastrous to get affected with it and we try to prevent it, but getting more knowledge wouldn't hurt but improve your protection and understanding.

Cancer is a very serious ailment that affects the individual not only physically, but emotionally and mentally, sometimes it's hard talking about it to family members and friends.
