Cancer Type

Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia

Bladder Cancer  

Bladder cancer is a common type of cancer that begins in urothelial cells inner lining of the bladder, mainly affecting the older adults.

Blood Cancer  

Blood cancer is caused by a dysfunctioning in cellular growth and behavior causing excessive production of WBCs in bone marrow.

Bone Cancer  

Bone cancer begins in the body, mainly affecting long bones like arms and legs, associated with hereditary factors and previous radiation

Brain Stem Glioma  

Brain stem glioma is a cancer of the central nervous system which begins when normal cells in the brain stem grow out of control,

Breast Cancer  

Breast cancer develops when cells in the breast divide and grow in an uncontrolled way creating a mass of tissue called as tumor.

Breast Cancer In Men

Cervical cancer is the cancer type that occurs in the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus connecting to the vagina.

Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia  

Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell).

Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia  

Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia is a type of blood cancer in which the bone marrow makes a large number of abnormal blood cells.

Childhood Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors  

Childhood Brain and Spinal Cord tumor develops due to growth of abnormal cells within the tissues of brain and spinal cord among children.

Childhood Craniopharyngioma  

Childhood craniopharyngiomas are rare tumours commonly found near the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.

Childhood Germ Cell Tumor is malignant cancers of germline cells affecting testis, ovary, and extragonadal sites of children aged 0–18 years.

Childhood Neuroblastoma  

Childhood Neuroblastoma begins in nerve cells outside the brain of infants and children and is often diagnosed during a prenatal period.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia  

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is the type of blood and bone marrow, progressing slowly affecting older adults and causing symptoms for years.

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia  

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia is slowly progressing, uncommon blood-cell cancer that begins in bone marrow, caused by chromosome mutation.

Colorectal Cancer  

Colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer, rectal cancer, or bowel cancer, is any cancer that affects the rectum and colon.

Desmoid Tumor  

Desmoid tumors are noncancerous tumors that develop in the connective tissue of structures such as bones, muscles, and ligaments.

Desmoplastic Infantile Ganglioglioma  

Desmoplastic Infantile Ganglioglioma is rare type of brain tumor occurs during childhood, originating in glial cells, the supportive cells in

Eosinophilic Leukemia  

Eosinophilic Leukemia is the form of blood cell cancer characterized by an elevated number of cells called eosinophils in the blood.

Ependymoma - Childhood  

Childhood ependymoma is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.

Esophageal Cancer  

Esophageal cancer is occurs in the esophagus, a long, hollow tube that runs from your throat to your stomach.

Ewing Sarcoma - Childhood and Adolescence  

Ewing Sarcoma - Childhood and Adolescence is the second most common malignant bone tumor affecting children, adolescents and young adults.

Eye Cancer  

Eye cancer is detected by vision changes, light flashes, growing dark spot on iris, change in size or shape of pupil, redness or swelling.
