Cancer (Oncology)

We talk about cancer as if it were one disease but it can be any one of 200 different conditions. What they all share is that they involve the uncontrolled division of cells which harms the body.

Ramsay hospitals offer a range of screening and diagnostic procedures at a time convenient to you, and also offers treatment for some of the most common types of cancer. We offer the support of multi-disciplinary teams who will be working together to ensure you get the care which is right for you


Breast Cancer

Breast cancer occurs when your breast tissue cells rapidly divide and grow abnormally. As these cells multiply, they accumulate and form lumps known as tumours. Your doctor will stage your cancer according to the size of your tumour and whether and how far it has spread to help decide what your treatments options are.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells that form into a mass of cancer cells. Most cases of skin cancer are caused by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun and also tanning beds and sunlamps. The diagnosis of skin cancer normally begins with an examination of your skin by a doctor or skin specialist (dermatologist) or plastic surgeon. They may take a biopsy to determine the type of skin cancer you have and whether it might spread to other parts of your body. Further tests may be required to check if cancer has spread to your lymph nodes or another part of your body.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop in the prostate and start to grow in an uncontrolled way.

There are different types of prostate cancer. In some men prostate cancer grows too slowly to cause any problems and does not require treatment but, in other men, prostate cancer grows quickly and spreads aggressively and treatment is needed to stop it spreading and prevent serious illness.

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer occurs when cells in your lung change and start to grow uncontrollably to form a tumour.

Primary lung cancer begins in your lungs and secondary lung cancer starts in another part of your body and spreads to your lungs. Most cases of lung cancer are caused by smoking, although people who have never smoked can also develop it.

Lymphomas

Lymphoma cancer can develop when your infection-fighting white blood cells, called lymphocytes, grow out of control. It starts in your lymph system, a network of vessels and glands spread throughout your body that produce, store, and carry white blood cells. The affected lymphocytes lose their infection-fighting properties and make you more vulnerable to infection.

There are two main types of lymphoma and within these are many subtypes. It is important to know the type of lymphoma to determine the best course of treatment.

Myeloma

Your bone marrow is a spongy tissue at the centre of your larger bones that makes all your body’s blood cells including red cells, white cells and platelets. Plasma cells are a type of white blood cell. Myeloma starts when abnormal plasma cells are created that quickly multiply and cluster. They leave less room for your normal blood cells to develop in your bone marrow, that keep you healthy.

Myeloma is also known as multiple myeloma as it affects multiple places in your body where bone marrow is found such as in the bones of your spine, skull, pelvis, ribs, arms, legs and the areas around your shoulders and hips.

Leukaemia

Leukaemia is a blood cancer that usually starts in your bone marrow, a spongy tissue found in the centre of your larger bones. All of your body’s blood cells including red cells, white cells and platelets are produced in the bone marrow.

Leukaemia leads to the over-production of abnormal white blood cells. White blood cells are part of your immune system and fight off infection, but incorrectly formed white blood cells cannot do this. Their abundance also crowds your red blood cells and platelets and means they cannot work properly either.

Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a cancer type that starts in your pancreas. It happens when pancreatic cells begin to divide and grow out of control. It can form a growth called a tumour. The cancer cells can grow into surrounding blood vessels or organs such as your small bowel and it may spread to other areas of your body.

Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer is cancer that starts in your stomach. In the UK, it is not a very common cancer. Stomach cancer, also called gastric cancer, can start in any part of your stomach or stomach wall. It happens when your stomach cells start to abnormally grow out of control. Most stomach cancers develop in the lining of the stomach. There are several different forms of stomach cancer.
