There are some types of cancer that are more commonly diagnosed as compared to the other ones. Some people are diagnosed with skin cancer. Another common type of cancer is lung cancer. There are so many people who die from it every year. Breast cancer is another common type of cancer.

People assume that this is a type of cancer that only affects women. Most of the breast cancer patients are women but there are still some cases of some men getting breast cancer. Prostate cancer is also another type of cancer but this affects men more. There is a type of test that should be done in order to test this.

There are different types of cancer available but the most common types are the following: lung cancer, breast cancer, and colorectum cancer. Lung cancer is the most common probably because of people’s exposure to all sorts of pollution.

Even people who have never smoked before may be at risk of developing this type of cancer simply because of the exposure to the smoke coming from vehicles, the smoke coming from factories, and so much more. Non-smokers who live in a household with smokers may develop lung cancer more. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer for women. This type of cancer usually starts at the milk-producing ducts.
