Our 1,100 cancer division staff treat over 25,000 patients each year – this cancer in numbers gives a snapshot of the work we do.   

This #worldcancerday we are highlighting some of the rarer cancers we treat at UCLH – read the blog on Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (also known as lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma) by consultant haematologist and one of the UK's leading experts in Waldenström’s, Dr Shirley D’Sa. 

Dr D’Sa talks about POEMS, a very rare blood disorder in this short film below

Dr Anita Mitra, consultant oncologist at the Male Genital Cancer Centre at UCLH has written a blog about penile cancer – 600 cases are diagnosed each year.

Our cancer blogs are updated regularly – and you get updates on the development of our new cancer and surgery centre.

You can read more about our services for blood disorders and urological cancers by visiting our web pages.
