Head and neck cancers

All types and stages of head and neck cancers, including cancer of the thyroid, mouth, tongue, throat, sinus and salivary glands. Advanced skin cancers and secondary cancers that have spread to involve the lymph glands around the neck. Most head and neck cancers begin in the cells that line the mucosal surfaces (moist lining) in the head and neck area, e.g. mouth, throat, and voicebox. These cancers are most commonly squamous cell carcinomas.

Neurological cancers

Tumours that start in the brain are called primary brain tumours. Some types of brain tumours are benign and some are malignant.

There are more than 100 types of benign and malignant tumours that originate from the brain, spinal cord and meninges. About 70% of all brain tumours are malignant.
