What is Cancer?
​There are many different types of cancers.  The classification largely depends on the organ it has arisen from and the type of cells seen from either a biopsy or from surgery to remove the affected tissue.  The more common cancers in Singapore are: lung, colorectal, breast, prostate, liver, stomach, uterine and ovarian.  Many of these are called carcinomas.  Other types of cancers include those of lymphatic origin (lymphomas); cancers of connective tissue, fat or muscle origin (sarcomas) amongst many other types.​​
