Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are various types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected. Cancer harms the body when altered cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumours (except in the case of leukaemia where cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream). Tumours can grow and interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory system and they can release hormones that alter body function.

Below listed are a few types of Cancer:
Prostate cancer is a disease which affects only males. It is the development of cancer in the prostate which is a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; the cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. It may initially cause no symptoms however in later stages it can lead to difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, or pain in the pelvis, back or when urinating.
Kidney cancer also called as renal cancer is a type of cancer in which kidney cells become malignant (cancerous) and grow out of control, forming a tumour. Almost all kidney cancers first appear in the lining of tiny tubes (tubules) in the kidney. This type of kidney cancer is called renal cell carcinoma. These types of cancers if caught early are easier to treat successfully. However, these tumours grow very large before they are detected.
Stomach cancer commonly known as Gastric cancer, is a type of cancer which develops from the lining of the stomach. Early symptoms may include heartburn, upper abdominal pain, nausea and loss of appetite. Later signs and symptoms may include weight loss, yellow skin and whites of the eyes, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, and blood in the stool among others. The cancer may spread from the stomach to other parts of the body, particularly the liver, lungs, bones, lining of the abdomen and lymph nodes.
Throat cancer refers to the cancer of the voice box, the vocal cords, and other parts of the throat, such as the tonsils etc.
Intestinal cancer is the presence of cancerous cells in the small or large intestines. The intestines are part of the body’s gastrointestinal (digestive) system. Cancer that develops in the large intestine (or large bowel) is called colorectal cancer. Small intestine cancer is a rare disease in which cancer cells grow in the small intestine (or small bowel).
