When cells disconnect from ‘signals from the host’ to become destructive rather than building healthy tissues, we call it cancer. This is an objective way of exploring self-destructive tendencies that may lead to imbalance. Some part of you is out of harmony with the flow of events and your nature has turned back upon itself. If someone else in the dream has cancer, explore how they might represent a side of you that you are not acknowledging but may be undermining your sense of wellness. See Healing.
