Causes of cancer include cancer-causing chemicals, called carcinogens, such as tobacco smoke, chemotherapies, asbestos, benzene, vinyl chloride, and many more, as well as environmental factors, such as ultraviolet light, pollution, and hepatitis B. For many forms of cancer, genetic inheritance plays a significant role

No matter the problem is, even a small disease is capable of bringing grief in a happy family. Cancer, just after hearing this word we get so much tensed and the person suffering from this automatically gets depressed and generally lose all the hope. There are very few people who are strong enough to handle this period of hardships and the ones who are able to do it with ultimate coverage can actually win this battle which against their own strengths. It tests their mental strength at every stage.

The diseases which are characterized by development of a large number of abnormal cells which divide uncontrollably and have the ability to infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue.

Cancer is caused by changes to DNA within cells. The DNA is packed inside a cell and contains a large number of individual genes. Errors in construction cause the cell to stop the functioning and allows to cell to become cancerous.


1. Family – If any one of your family member had cancer then it is possible that mutations get passed from one generation to another. But it is also not a surety that cancer is always inherited.

2. Health Condition – if you are suffering from some chronic diseases, say for example, ulcerative colitis, it can increase your risk of getting cancer.

3. Habits – If you are getting extreme exposure in sunlight, you are obese, are having unsafe sex, have blistering sunburns or have a habit of smoking and drinking, then you are most prone of suffering from cancer.

4. Environment – Even if you are not smoking, but the place you are putting up in has polluted gases in its air, there are people who smoke at your place, then their habits can indirectly lead you to get into the trap of cancer.

5. Age – Growing age is an incline towards cancer. If you do not take care of your health with your age, then there are increased chances of getting cancer.

Malignancy can create when a cell begins to isolate unreasonably (is "deified") and develops past its ordinary organ limits, because of the cell's qualities having experienced a transformation (a DNA change) that has gotten away from our resistant observation, these changes frequently advance development, or square inhibitory qualities that repress development, or harm fix qualities that fix prior DNA harm that can prompt disease.

Our surrounding cannot be more polluted than it is today, and consequently, the percentage of people suffering from one disease or other is increasing exponentially. What’s more worrying is that today’s busy life is not allowing us to pay attention on our health, and take it as a priority. In present times, when even the most natural of things like food and air have become artificial, we need to pay even more attention on our health, which we are not doing, and taking it very lightly.

Now coming back to your question, you want to know the leading cause of Cancer. It’s a general opinion that cancer is caused by excessive smoking, but have you ever thought about those who don’t smoke at all and still acquire this fatal disease. If we say that smoking is the sole reason of cancer, and go by stereotypes, then men would be more vulnerable to cancer than women.

According to Yoga and Ayurveda, the anxiety which constantly looms over human nature, invites the disease in human body. The more a human is anxious, the more he would attract diseases towards him. Stress and anxiety, therefore, is seen as the major cause of cancer. To improve our lifestyle and make it healthy, we need to keep our mind and soul peaceful, and our surroundings tranquil. Only then will we be able to get rid of anxiety, and hence of fatal diseases like cancer.

With the increasing development of medical science, we think that any disease can be cured through medicine and treatment. But let’s not forget the saying that “prevention is better than cure”. And if you still were unable to prevent yourself, you have to look for the root cause instead of blindly taking medicines and treatments. Knowing the root causes can help in prevention from the same disease later in life too. Any medicine, any treatment would be unable to cure your body unless you chase away anxiety and stress from your mind.
