Types of cancer
  • There are over one hundred types of cancer that can affect the human body. Each of the types of cancer has its own name, behavior, and course of treatment. All cancers involve the abnormal growth of cells. The most commonly found cancers in humans include carcinoma, sarcoma, leukemia, lymphoma, and adenoma.

  • Lymphoma: Lymphomas develop in the lymph nodes and tissues of the immune system.
