Brain Cancer

Brain and central nervous cancer occurs when there is an abnormal growth of cells that start in the brain. There are several types of brain and central nervous cancer.

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer occurs when the cells in the breast grow abnormally. Once breast cancer starts, it can spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women.

Bone Cancer

Bone cancer occurs when cells in the bone grow whether they need to or not. There are two types of bone cancer: primary, which is cancer that starts in the bone, and secondary, which is when the cancer spreads from the bone to other areas of the body.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer occurs when cells in the cervix start to grow abnormally. There are several types of cervical cancer, but the most common forms are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.

Colorectal Cancer

Colon and rectal cancer occurs when the cells in either the colon or rectum start to grow out of control. It usually begins as a polyp or growth of tissue. It is the third most common form of cancer for both men and women.

Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is when the cells in any part of the esophagus begin to abnormally grow at a fast rate. There are two types of esophageal cancer, squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.

Head and Neck Cancers

Head and neck cancer is an abnormal growth of cells that start in the head or neck region. This type of cancer can  occur in the larynx, nasal cavity, oral cavity, paranasal sinuses, pharynx or salivary glands.

Hodgkin’s disease

Hodgkin's lymphoma spreads in a predictable pattern and can spread to other organs in the body. These cancer cells only make up a small part of the cells in a cancerous lymph node.

Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is when cells in the liver grow at an abnormal pace. It is not the same as cancers that start somewhere else in the body and then spread to the liver. 

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer usually starts in the lining of the bronchi when cells in the tissue begin to grow rapidly. This can al​so start in other areas of the lungs, such as the bronchioles or alveoli. This is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women.

Melanoma

Melanoma is the rarest form of skin cancer. Melanoma occurs when skin cells called melanocytes begin to grow rapidly and abnormally. This type of skin cancer is most likely to spread to other areas of the body. 

Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a rare cancer that begins in a type of white blood cell called the plasma cell. When these cells become abnormal and grow rapidly, it turns into cancer. 

Ovarian Cancer

The ovaries have several layers of cells that make up the organs. Ovarian cancer is when cells in any of these layers begin to grow at a rapid and uncontrollable rate. 

Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer occurs when a cell in the pancreas is damag​ed and this malignant (cancer) cell starts to grow out of control.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is when cells in the prostate change and grow out of control. These cells may form a tumor, noncancerous growth, atypical cells, cancer and metastatic cancer. 

Soft Tissue Cancer

Soft tissue makes up muscles, tendons, blood vessels, fat, nerves and deep skin tissues. Sarcoma is cancer which occurs when cells begin to multiply at a fast rate. Soft tissue sarcoma is a rare form of cancer.

Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer starts when the cells in the stomach begin to grow abnormally. Stomach cancer is also referred to as gastric cancer. The most common form of stomach cancer is adenocarcinoma. Lymphomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors and carcinoid tumors are other forms of stomach cancer.

Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is when abnormal cells develop in a testicle. If testicular cancer is found early enough, with the help of self-examination, it is the most curable form of cancer.

Urethral Cancer

Urethral cancer is a rare form of cancer that develops in the tube that carries urine from the bladder to an opening on the outside of the body.

Uterine Cancer

The uterus, also called the womb, is an organ in a woman's lower abdomen, between the bladder and the rectum. Uterine cancer is when the cells lining the uterus start to multiply when they do not need to. Cancer of the uterus can spread through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.
