In this video from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America shared in October 2013, Dr. Edgar Staren and Dr. Maurie Markman from the organization talk about the anatomy of cancer, the complexity of cancer diseases and the treatments used to cure cancer, including conventional and complementary treatments.
Staren explains that one in every two men and one in every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Markman explains how cancer cells work and describes how they can occur anywhere in the body and spread to nearby tissue and organs, potentially becoming life-threatening.
