Complete List of Cancer Types A-Z According to the NCI

Cancer is a term referring to a class of diseases. Here, rogue cells are produced in the body which have three characteristics properties. They can grow uncontrollably, invade and destroy nearby healthy cells and spread to the remote organs of the body to affect them.

In 90-95 percent cases environmental factors are responsible for causing this dreadful disease. In the remaining 5-10 percent cases, it is caused by genetic changes in the body.

This article lists all the cancer types alphabetically according to the National Cancer Institute. It concludes by showing the most common cancer types and the cancers responsible for more number of deaths in men and women using pie chart.
