canker (noun) a disease that affects plants and animals; a dangerous tendency or an evil trend affecting a society badly.

Canker is usually a disease attacking trees or animals. In the case of trees, it damages the wood, and in the case of animals it causes ulcerous soars in their ears. Canker is also an evil causing harm to a society. It is a dangerous trend likely to spread among people and thus affect the whole community badly. Drunkenness, poverty, drugs, violence, etc., are examples of canker.
