The next section of the circle is a lighter green. It takes up about a quarter of the circle. It is labelled: 27% Less common cancers (for example bladder cancer and melanoma).

The next section is purple. It is the smallest section. It is labelled: 20% rare and very rare cancers (for example mouth cancer). This section is made up of two shades of purple. Two thirds of it is a lighter shade and a third is a darker shade. There is a label coming from the darker shade. It says: one in three rare cancers are very rare.
