When it comes to cancer, your primary care doctor is often the best place to start with prevention and detection. Cancer isn’t uncommon for Dr. Larry Anderson and the staff of Anderson Family Medicine in Dawsonville. But what exactly is it? “It’s like art. You know it when you see it, but to get down on a molecular diagnosis of it, it’s abnormal cells that can lead to death or destruction of tissue,” Anderson said. It’s a blanket term for abnormal cells that divide and multiply and can spread to other parts of the body, but cancer can be found in organs, bones and blood.
