Cancer Types Costa Rica

All cancers fall into one of four broad categories:

Sarcomas are tumors that originate in bone, muscle, cartilage, fibrous tissue or fat.

Carcinomas are tumors that arise in the tissues that line the body's organs. About 80% of all cancer cases are carcinomas.

Leukemias are cancers of the blood or blood-forming organs.

Lymphomas affect the lymphatic system, a network of vessels and nodes that acts as the body's filter. The lymphatic system distributes nutrients to blood and tissue, and prevents bacteria and other foreign "invaders" from entering the bloodstream.
