Infectious Diseases and Cancer

Infections may result raising the risk of cancer in different ways.

Some of the viruses directly affect the genes inside cells that regulate their growth. These viruses can penetrate their own genes into the cell, causing the cell to grow enormously. These infections may lead in long-term inflammation in a part of the body. This results to changes in the affected cells, which can eventually lead to occurrence of cancer.

Some of infections can suppress or decrease a person’s immune system, which normally helps to protect the body from foreign elements and thus increasing the chance of cancer.

The risk of developing cancer is also influenced by other factors such as, infection with Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) bacteria can increase your risk of stomach cancer, but what you eat, whether or not you smoke, and other factors also comes under account.
