  • Most anal cancers are squamous cell carcinomas that grow on the skin lining the inside of the anus. Anal cancer is rare and, if caught early, usually curable.
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are the same disease. It is a slow-growing  cancer that develops when lymphocytes, a mature type of white blood cell, do not fully develop. These abnormal lymphocytes do not fight infection well and crowd out healthy blood cells.
  • Head and neck tumors are those that grow in the nose, sinuses, mouth (oral cavity), throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx), salivary glands, lymph nodes in the neck, thyroid gland or parathyroid glands. They can be cancerous or noncancerous (benign).
  • Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancer of the white blood cells, which play a key role in the immune system.
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that starts in cells called lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that helps the body fight infection.
  • Ovarian cancer occurs when abnormal cells divide uncontrollably in a woman’s ovarian tissue.
