Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing, and you probably have many questions. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.

To find out more about a wide range of information on cancer for patients and families, visit the Cancer Institute NSW.

Cancer Council NSW and Menzies School of Health Research have developed fact sheets about cancer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. These resources were also developed in conjunction with a Clinical Advisory Group and an Indigenous Consultation Group. They include information on cancer types, treatment and common cancer terms.

For multicultural communities visit the Cancer Institute NSW to find information about cancer in your language.
