Types

There are many different types of cancer but all cancers can be grouped into one of four categories. There are several factors that determine how cancer is diagnosed such as location and how the cancerous cells appear under the microscope. A good example is breast cancer, there are several forms and each is classified according to where the tumors originate within the breast, and the tendency of the tumors to invade the surrounding organs and tissues.
 
Categories
  • Carcinomas: 80% of cancers are this. Carcinomas are tumors that arise in the tissues that line the body’s organs.
  • Sarcomas: Tumors that start in bone, muscle, cartilage, fibrous tissue or fat.
  • Leukemias: Cancers of the blood or blood-forming organs.
  • Lymphomas: This affects the lymphatic system which is a network of vessels and nodes that acts as a filter. The lymphatic system distributes nutrients to blood and tissue. This prevents bacteria and other foreign “invaders” from entering into the bloodstream.
