This educational video provides information about human cells, in particular cancer cells.
Behind the development of the human being is cell growth through cell division. Given the 100 trillion cells that make up a human being, it is obvious that errors in cell division can occur. In most cases, errors such as mutations are recognised by the organism itself and are counteracted – but if this does not succeed, it may sometimes lead to the development of cancer. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or a combination of these methods. Because radiation and chemotherapy do not always affect only the diseased cell material, but also other, healthy regions, there are negative consequences, such as hair loss, fatigue, nausea, weight loss and pain.
You can find more detailed information, which is nicely designed, in the video
