Cancer is a condition where cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably, often forming tumours. The cancerous cells can invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including organs. They can also start in one part of the body before spreading to other areas. This is known as metastasis.
There are more than 200 different types of cancer. Our specialists working across the RD&E diagnose and treat each one in a particular way.
We know that a cancer diagnosis has a great impact on patients and carers, physically, emotionally, and psychologically. We aim to provide the highest possible standard of care for all our patients at every stage of their pathway.
