How to use "Malignancy" in context?


malignancy is the scientific term for cancer. Cancer is a complex disease that arises when cells in the body become cancerous. There are many types of cancer, but all share one common trait: the ability to invade and damage surrounding tissues.

Cancer can be caused by a variety of factors, including a person's genetics, lifestyle, and environment. In many cases, however, cancer is the result of mutations in the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) of cells. This malignant growth is usually the result of the misdirection of cell division and the overgrowth of malignant cells.
