Cancer Types


July 1, 2017 - By: KCB Admin
There are more than 100 types of cancer. Types of cancer are usually named for the organs or tissues where the cancers form, but they also may be described by the type of cell that formed them. 

A special thank's to the National Cancer Institute for this information and their unwavering dedication in the battle for cancer's eradication.
