Types of cancer


Leukaemia is a group of blood cancers that typically begin in the bone marrow, resulting in high numbers of abnormal blood cells. These blood cells, known as blasts or leukaemia cells, are not fully developed.
Lymphoma is a cancer that starts in cells originating from the body's immune system.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer that affects plasma cells in the bone marrow.
Myelodysplastic syndromes (also called myelodysplasia or MDS) are a rare form of blood cancer, where individuals do not have enough healthy blood cells.
Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of rare blood cancers characterised by the excessive production of blood cells in the bone marrow.
