Cancer is a disease caused when normal cells change or grow in an uncontrolled way. This uncontrolled growth causes a lump, which is usually referred to as a tumour. If not treated, tumours can cause problems in any of the following manners:


- Spreading into normal tissues nearby


- Causing pressure on other organs and body structures


- Spreading to other parts of the body through the bloodstream or the lymphatic system


There are over 200 different types of cancer largely because there are over 200 different types of body cell. So it follows that cells that make up the lungs can cause a lung cancer etc.  But more than that, there are different cells within the lungs, and these could cause different types of lung cancer.


Anal Cancer


The most common type is squamous cell carcinoma. Other types are basal cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and melanoma.

Bladder Cancer


Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, this is known as advanced bladder cancer.

Brain Cancer - Adult


A brain tumour is an abnormal growth of cells in the brain. If any brain cells grow and multiply abnormally to cause a brain tumour, this is called a primary tumour. If abnormal cells have spread to the brain from a cancerous tumour in another part of the body, this is called a secondary tumour or a metastasis.

Brain Cancer - Children


Astrocytoma is the most common type, accounting for more than 40 per cent of cases. Astrocytoma is diagnosed throughout childhood and has no strong pattern by either sex or age. The second most frequent sub-group is intracranial and intraspinal embryonal tumours which account for around a fifth of cases (70 cases per year). These are most common in early childhood; most cases are medulloblastoma, which is around 60 per cent more common in boys than girls.

Bone Cancer


Bone cancer is a malignant tumour of the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not all bone tumours are malignant. In fact, benign (non-cancerous) bone tumours are more common than malignant ones. Both malignant and benign bone tumours may grow and compress healthy bone tissue, but benign tumours do not spread, do not destroy bone tissue, and are rarely a threat to life.

Bile Duct Cancer


Bile duct cancer is also called cholangiocarcinoma. Doctors divide bile duct cancers into 3 groups depending on where they develop in the biliary system. Intrahepatic region – this means within the liver and includes the right and left hepatic ducts and their smaller branches Perihilar (hilar) region – this is just outside the liver where the right and left hepatic ducts meet Distal region – this includes the bile ducts close to the small bowel and the pancreas.

Kidney Cancer


There are different types of kidney cancer. About 90% of kidney cancers (9 out of 10) are renal cell cancers (RCC), sometimes called renal adenocarcinoma. They start in the cells that line very small tubes, called tubules, in the kidney cortex. There are different types of renal cell cancer. The most common type is clear cell renal cancer. Less common types are papillary, chromophobe and collecting duct renal cancer. Another type of cancer that can affect the kidneys starts in the cells that line the renal pelvis, where the kidney joins with the ureter. These cancers, sometimes called transitional cell cancers, behave and are treated differently to renal cell cancer.

Breast Cancer - Women



Breast cancer occurs when cells within breast tissue mutate and begin to multiply uncontrollably. This leads to the development of tumours, which have the potential to spread through other parts of the body through the lymph nodes.
