Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Its a broad question. It depends on the type of cancer and the area / system that it involves as well as the individual in question. Effects include aggressive local invasion and destruction of tissue, weight loss, decreased immunity and increased susceptibility to infections and distant metastases.

Wishing you best of health
