Top 10 Deadliest Types of Cancer

The Top Ten Deadliest Types of Cancer

1 Lung Cancer

My 89 year old Brother Dustin Has had lung cancer for 5 years. Its sad but he died On July 5th this year. I Miss him. I Loved my younger brother.

Lung cancer is the deadliest because it has an extremely low survival rate (only pancreatic cancer has a higher fatality rate than lung cancer) and is the most prevalent form of cancer. It is deadly in terms of both prevalence and fatality rate - styLIShT

This cancer will kill you faster than Kim kardashians first marriage. It's the TRUTH!

I've found out that my dad had lung cancer just the other day and we never found out how he got it, though he is a heavy drinker

2 Leukemia

It sucks I had it

My grampa has it!

Oh. Has anyone heard the story of Sadako and the thousand paper cranes? It's about a girl who has this type and tried to make 1000 paper cranes because a legend says if you do you will be healthy again - AnonymousChick

This girl Cami has this cancer :( - bashfulfox

I have leukaemia ( badly ). Its hard. I was told I may not live past a week, but I did! I have been in the hospital for 2 months now. I was having a night dose of chemotherapy. But that didn’t work very well, so now I’m getting prepped for surgery. We’re going to try and remove the tumour,it’s a very dangerous operation but I will be fine. Hopefully

3 Pancreatic Cancer

The most people to die from a certain cancer should not be the determining factor for if it is deadliest or should be the percentage of how many people get it, and die, therefore putting pancreatic as #1. More people die from lung cancer because there is a large amount of people smoking and giving others second hand smoke, it has nothing to do with the actual cancer. Pancreatic cancer is almost a guarantee that you wont live:/ I lost my dad when I was 10 to it

Personally I don't understand how you can vote something like this. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survivability rate, and thus it is the deadliest type of cancer. The deadliest type of cancer and the type of cancer that claims the most lives are two different things, and studies show that Pancreatic cancer has a higher mortality rate than Lung cancer.

Steve Jobs, the APPLE genius, had died from this VERY deadly disease. That is why I think it should rank very high as per mortality rates.

After returning from a year in Iraq with the Army I was diagnosed with PC 4 years after, I had a potatoes size tumor on the body and tail with a dozen tumors in my liver, that was 2 years ago.

4 Brain Cancer

I am in the hospital with a high fever that doesn't go down I can't open my eyes and can't walk sometimes I forget stuff and I cont concentrate I feel dizzy and I move but do not have seizures yet does it mean that I have cancer

An absolutely devastating cancer.

That's called My Immortal


5 Colon Cancer

My grandpa had this. It was a tough time for him. He spent sixteen days in the hospital, and had to go through a lot of pain after his operation. Thankfully he survived, and he is OK now. I wouldn't call this the most deadly cancer, but it should be in the top 5 as it is.

I have just been diagnosed with a tumor on the large intestine colon help please advice would be helpfull

I'm late but colon tumours can show up before turning cancerous (pre-malignant polyps) It's basically stage 0 colon cancer, anyway get it checked soon - styLIShT

6 Breast Cancer

Though it's one of the relatively easier forms to treat, the prevalence of breast cancer in women is large. About 1 out of 8 women get diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives - styLIShT

My girlfriend has been diagnosed with this horrible disease, she has no hope for getting better but I hope she fights it. Breast cancer and all other cancers are absolutely horrible.. I wish the best for all cancer fighters

Since I've never really had a relative or friend I knew with cancer I can't really help but best of luck to your girlfriend - Enderninja327

It,s my opinion that the current treatment for cancer is in direct violation of Hippocrates oath that all Dr.s have pledged to up hold to there utmost's abilities (as I interpret -to help but at least do no harm) this I have have been witness on many different occasions of cancer treatment being in derect violation of this oath and it's meaning.

7 Skin Cancer

it's proved it's the deadliest

You really think not having skin will keep you alive?

My dad has it

8 Prostate Cancer

This is one of the reasons why I still masturbate

9 Ovarian Cancer

It is a silent killer and disease with so little awareness. Even went I went to my primary care physician she did not even consider ovarian cancer and I was in advanced stages.

Yes, I remember my godmother when she was suffering. However, I really do not understand why I feel different. But now I realized that I was wrong. No miracle would come. :( - sdravenson

My mom just passed away from ovarian cancer. She was diagnosed just under 9 months ago. Horrible stuff.

There us currently no test for early detection and limited awareness

10 Bone Cancer

Just horrible!

The Contenders

11 Cerivical Cancer
12 Stomach Cancer

It was also caused by some microbe which is now becoming rare - Toucan

13 Naso-Pharyngeal Cancer
14 Throat Cancer
15 Blood Cancer
16 Liver Cancer

My mum too has liver cancer, please help me pray for her.

I'm Sad To Say That My 76 Year Old Grandfather Has Liver Cancer

17 Eye Cancer

It will probably kill and you will go blind

I KNOW THE CAUSE OF EYE CANCER! Watch sans fangirls kill each other. That's the cause. JK eye cancer isn't a thing.

18 Hand Cancer

Thank god it's rare

19 Heart Cancer

Why is that cancer just in this spot it is in your heart

My aunt had that but sadly died.

20 Testicular Cancer

This is the best cancer to get, if you had to get one. It has a survival rate of ~95% - styLIShT

And you can live without testicles. You'll live less manly but you'll live. - Skullkid755

21 Appendix Cancer

I can’t get that my appendix was removed when I was 6 ( that’s the only good thing about appendicitis )

Explain. The appendix can just be removed, since it has no purpose. - Skullkid755

Really Rare! 1in a million have it

22 Mesothelioma

A tumor of the tissue that lines the lungs, stomach, heart, and other organs.

Steve McQueen died of this cancer

23 Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG)

It's a type of brain cancer susceptible to individuals between the ages of 5-9, but is also prevalent to ages above as well. There's also hardly any method to treatment and due to the effects it causes on the infected individual, life expectancy is usually between 6-12 months, although some live beyond. Unfortunately, death is almost always inevitable :(. - CrimsonShark

24 Multiple Myeloma

Cancer of the bone marrow (not bone cancer).
