infection (in-FEK-shun)

Invasion and multiplication of germs in the body. Infections can occur in any part of the body
and can spread throughout the body. The germs may be bacteria, viruses, yeast, or fungi. They
can cause a fever and other problems, depending on where the infection occurs. When the body’s
natural defense system is strong, it can often fight the germs and prevent infection. Some cancer
treatments can weaken the natural defense system.
