The doctor quickly inserted the sharp, long needle, into the patience's skin, racing the patience's life, before the cancer killed her. The cancer had already spread into the patience's body by invading either the patience's lymph nodes or the blood vessels. Once the cancer enters the blood, it will spread to other parts of the body. Cancer is killing people all over the world.


Now you are probably wondering what cancer even is. Cancer is a man-made disease in which cells multiply wildly, destroying healthy tissue. Now you might be thinking, wow, I didn't know that cancer was a man-made disease. But yes, cancer is man-made.


Cancer has traveled to many places over the years. But cancer originally started in Egypt. Did you know that cancer was discovered in Egypt in approximatley 1600 BC?


A few years ago, in the year of 2000, we know of 10 million people who were diognosed with cancer. Out of those people, 6.2 million people died. And out of those people, over 300,000 people died of lung cancer, in just the U.S. alone.


So after that, you probably want to know some symptoms of lung cancer, if you live in the U.S. Some symptoms of lung cancer are: wheezing, coughing over and over, chest pain, shorter breaths, and headaches. Also lung cancer is represented by the color pearl; white. There are many different types of cancer, represented by many different colors. For example, Breast cancer is pink, Leukemia cancer is orange and green, liver cancer is yellow, and there is many, many more.


If you have cancer, don't give up, try to pull through. But don't take it for granted. People need to remember that cancer is very deadly. People have died from cancer all over the world.
