Different types of Cancer
Leukemia, lung, liver, and bone cancer are all types of the deadly disease Cancer. The most common cancer for kids to get is leukemia, although it is outrageously rare to get cancer as a child.† Just to let you know how rare it is, doctors donít start checking for it until the age of 50.
There are over 50 different types of cancer. All of these types are not contagious. The disease cancer is passed down through DNA. Which means that if your dad had cancer and your grandpa had cancer you are likely to get cancer. But donít worry that doesnít mean you have to get cancer.
Plus, just to let you know, different types of cancer are more aggressive than others. Meaning the cancer cells will produce more rapidly and will be harder to destroy.
