Types of Cancer

Cancer is a generic term that refers to a range of diseases. More than 100 different types of cancer exist. Most cancers are called after the organ or cell type in which they begin. Cancer types can be classified into a few different categories. The following are the primary types of cancer:

  • Carcinoma- It is a type of cancer that starts in the skin or in the tissues that surround or border internal organs.
  • Sarcoma- It is a cancer that starts in the connective or supportive tissue of the bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, or blood vessels.
  • Leukemia- It is a cancer that begins in blood-forming tissue, such as the bone marrow, and results in the production of vast numbers of abnormal blood cells, which then enter the bloodstream.
  • Lymphoma and myeloma are cancers that originate in immune system cells.
  • Mixed cancers are cancers that arise in two or more types of cells from one or more categories.
