There are over 200 recognised types of cancer, below we have included some brief information about some of the most common types.

Before reading please note that we at Cancer Recovery Foundation UK do not claim to have any medical expertise, instead we focus on supporting patients after their diagnosis and helping them during treatment and their recover from cancer. Our staff will be happy to talk to you about your cancer but they are not medically trained and will not be able to give you treatment advice.

For more detailed help with specialised cancer treatments we suggest you ask your doctor to recommend some reading material for you or that you contact the cancer specialist department within the NHS or a recognised specialist charity. For example if you would like to know more about Prostate Cancer we’d suggest you contact Prostate Cancer UK.
