Rare and less common cancers account for nearly half of new cancer diagnoses1 and over half of cancer-related deaths.

They affect people of all ages, genders, ethnicities and locations. However, the nature of their conditions means that people can often face a range of issues, such as recognising symptoms, obtaining a diagnosis, receiving the most suitable treatment or getting appropriate levels of support.

We have created a list of resources and links to helpful pages to help you understand more about rare and less common cancers and the challenges facing people living with them.
