Other Cancers

Cancer is a diverse group of several hundred diseases, in which some cells in the body become abnormal and multiply in an uncontrolled way.

Cancer occurs in males and females, although there are some types of cancer that are gender specific, such as cancers of the reproductive organs. It is estimated that in 2017, 134,174 new cases of cancer (72,169 males and 62,005 females) will be diagnosed in Australia.
