Cancer is a genetic disease. When a cancerous mutation happens inside the cell's nucleus, uncontrolled cell division happens, which leads to cancer formation. There are two different types of genetic mutations according to the originating cell:

• Germline Mutation: These are mutations that happen in the egg or sperm inherited from parents. Since these are the cells that form our entire body, these mutations can be detected in any body cell.

• Somatic Mutation: These are mutations that happen during our life span and affected a particular type of body cell causing them to become cancerous. These mutations can only be detected in the cancerous cells.

A person born with an inherited mutation in certain cell regulating genes would have a higher risk of developing cancer than someone born without a gene mutation.
