– Certain viruses and bacteria may be augmenting the causative agents for certain cancers.
Malignant diseases are caused both by external (chemical substances, radiation, viruses), as well as by internal factors (hormones, stress, lack of vitamins and nutrients, inheritance mutations …). The cancer-causing factors can act individually or together, leading to changes that lead to the development of cancer. From exposure to the factor or cancer-causing factors, the occurrence of clinically manifest disease can last 10 years or more. The correlation between the onset of a disease and the action of a specific factor is usually expressed through various degrees of risk. Knowing these risks is necessary for the prevention of cancer. A risk factor for the development of cancer may be some habit, genetic characteristic, exposure to some carcinogenic matter, which increases the risk that a person suffers from a certain malignant disease.
