Uncommon: These are uncommon cancers. They might be related to smoke or other exposures, but are not typical sites of cancer. There are about 2000 cases yearly in the us. I think that no smoking is the best advice. If you have some symptoms that worry you see your doctor. Is is likely to be something else.
