Ear cancer

If cancer starts in the ear, this is ear cancer. Ear cancer is very rare and is usually a type of skin cancer.

Endocrine tumours

The endocrine system produces hormones – chemicals that control many bodily functions. Tumours can occur in this system. Most endocrine tumours are benign (non-cancerous), but some are malignant (cancerous).

Eye cancer

Cancer that starts in the eye is rare. Eye cancer is usually a type of skin cancer, called melanoma.
