Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This field of healthcare aims to prevent cancer by teaching people about the need of taking precautions, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and supporting people in reducing their exposure to risk factors such as cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, pollution, as well as other forms of hazards (cancer-causing agents).

Some of the most common reasons for cancer germination and development are:

Alcohol: Alcohol clubbed with the habit of using tobacco, is beyond lethal and induces a high chance of cancer.

Tobacco: Smoking or chewing tobacco directly damages the lungs, mouth, larynx, esophagus, bladder, throat, liver, kidney, stomach, rectum, colon, and cervix, and also heightens the chances for acute myeloid leukemia.

Cancer-Causing Substances: Certain alterations to genes may also induce a high risk of cancer.

Obesity: Obesity can lead to cancer of the breast, colon, rectum, endometrium, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, and gallbladder.

Age: Old age holds a high potential for cancerous cells to house the body.

Infectious Agents: Agents like onco-viruses, bacteria, and parasites, can cause cancer.

Immunosuppression: A weak or damaged immune mechanism may also lead to threats of cancer.
