      Animals can get tumours almost anywhere in the body – so long as there are cells there which are dividing. There are certain places where it is extremely rare to develop tumours – such as teeth, cartilage and adrenal gland.

      Yes. Any parts of you body that are ‘alive’ (so not hair etc) can grow a tumour.
