Humanities enemy

Can you hear me reproduce
Good luck finding out the truth 

I know you cannot see me
You'll never know where I'll be 

You feed me well, so I grow 
And in time you'll surely know 

Eventually I'll be seen 
And you'll try to intervene 

By then I've done some traveling 
Conquering and ravaging 

But there is only one way 
To try to keep me at bay

It will harm me this is true 
But it also will harm you 

I do my job very well 
I've hijacked many a cell

I enjoy taking my time 
Making what's yours into mine 

I will win that's for damn sure 
Most people call me 
Cancer

Good solid rhyme, nice twist at the end,..not keen on the title it almost gives it away ...but a clever read all the same...
