Diseases which are spread by direct contact are called contagious diseases. They can also be spread through their secretions or objects touched by the infected. Some examples include athlete's foot, impetigo and warts. Contagious diseases are part of a broader group of diseases called infectious diseases. Infectious diseases can be transmitted in other ways, such as through liquids or the air. All contagious diseases are infectious, but not all infectious diseases are contagious.

no cancer is not an infectious disease. it does not spread by touching and any other contact.

Non-infectious diseases are easier to control - because you only need to treat the individual patient. With infectious diseases - the illness is spread between people - by touching or simply breathing in the same air while in close contact.

Infectious diseases spread either by person to person contact, or indirectly by a vector or a fomite.

Diseases such as cancer and heart disease not infectious because you cannot contract them through personal contact like you can a virus or bacteria.

Infectious diseases can be spread airbourne, human contact with an infected person, foodbourne, and waterborne.

infectious diseases (those with bacterial or virus, or prion) you can also "catch" chemical based diseases such as contamination burns if you come into contact with someone with the chemicals on them.

The best way to find out about emerging infectious diseases would be to contact your doctor to discuss it. If you would prefer you could look on a health website or blog.

By coming in direct contact with people that have the disease, or if the nature of the illness is such that the infectious agent can survive outside the body by making contact with those infectious agents where they are left by the carriers of the disease.

Communicable diseases are those that are spread by contact with other people or items that have touched their bodies. The other terms associated with this term are contagious and infectious which specify more clearly which type of contact is required for transmission.

Infectious disease, also known as a communicable disease or transmittable disease, is contagious. This means that you can catch it by some sort of contact, such as touching. An example of an infection disease is the flu, you can be infected with the flu if you have contact with an individual who has the flu.Non infectious disease, also known as a noncommunicable disease is not contagious. This means that you will not catch by any sort of contact. These diseases are usually caused by either genetics or environmental causes. An example of a noninfectious disease is cancer.

It is indeed caused by a micro-organism transferable from an infected person to a susceptible contact. However it is the least infectious of all infectious diseases. Immunity of the human beings against the invading pathogenic organism is very high. In this respect leprosy differs from most infectious diseases.Dr R Ganapati,Bombay leprosy Projecte-mail : rganapati@yahoo.com

An infectious disease is caused by a microorganism entering and attacking your body. People can pass these microorganisms from one person to another. This is called infectious.An infectious disease is transmitted from some source. Defining the means of transmission plays an important part in understanding the biology of an infectious agent, and in addressing the disease it causes. Transmission may occur through several different mechanisms. Respiratory diseases and meningitis are commonly acquired by contact with aerosolized droplets, spread by sneezing, coughing, talking, kissing or even singing. Gastrointestinal diseases are often acquired by ingesting contaminated food and water. Sexually transmitted diseases are acquired through contact with bodily fluids, generally as a result of sexual activity. Some infectious agents may be spread as a result of contact with a contaminated, inanimate object (known as a fomite), such as a coin passed from one person to another, while other diseases penetrate the skin directly.

No. Cancers are not communicable diseases- they are specific to the patient. You cannot 'catch' cancer by contact with an infected person.

Increased international contact allow diseases to spread farther and faster *apex

Genetic diseases are not transmitted by contact with someone else who has the disease. Diseases of lifestyle choice are not contracted by contact with any infectious agent either (i.e. diabetes caused by being overweight, sedentary, and improper diet).

User Avatar

define infectious...by physical or airborn contact no. Although it can be "infectious" by it being a family trait.

User Avatar

The infectious diseases can spread through air, indirect or direct contact and through body fluids like urine and saliva.

Herpes simplex virus is an infectious agent that causes infections spread by sex (STDs) as well as other non-sexual infectious diseases. Herpes simplex virus is spread by skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. This contact may or may not be sexual.
