Cancer is a general term for more than 100 diseases caused by uncontrolled, abnormal cell growth.
Doctors and other health care providers work together to evaluate and treat cancer.
A patient's cancer care team may include experts in medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery, radiology, pathology, palliative care, cancer rehabilitation, as well as the primary care physician.
