    Cancer is generally caused by uncontrolled cell division, and can occur in any part of the body that is actively producing new cells. Most parts of the body produce new cells to replace old or worn out cells. When enough new cells are produced, the body sends a signal telling the cells to stop dividing. Cancer can occur if the cells fail to stop dividing, either because the mechanism that sends the stop signal is damaged, or the receptors on the new cells that receive the stop signal are damaged. This damage can be caused by a wide variety of external environmental factors (carcinogens), or by errors in the cells genetic code.
