Select consultant name Select a cancer type What Is Unknown Primary Cancer Unknown Primary Cancer is commonly referred to as CUP. This is a cancer which has been identified in one part of the body, making it a secondary cancer, but can’t be traced back to its origin. Types of CUP can include: melanoma, lymphoma and carcinomas. The most common CUP is Adenocarcinoma, a form of carcinoma that comes from glandular tissue. It only effects between 3-5% of cancer patients and is more common with older people, accounting for an average of 9,800 diagnoses every year. Risk factors for unknown primary cancer can include: women who have had the human papilloma virus (HPV), previous use of radiotherapy in the pelvic area and older women who used diethylstilbestrol in the past (it’s also recommended that daughters of women who’ve taken it get regular check- ups too) Some of the typical signs of someone having a CUP can include loss of appetite over a long period, unexplained weight loss, anaemia and prolonged bouts of tiredness. The LOC is private cancer clinic in London that has years of experience treating unknown primary cancer, using the latest medicine and technologies available to treat this difficult kind of diagnosis.
