Welcome to Find Cancer Early
People living in regional Australia have poorer cancer outcomes than people living in metropolitan areas. Survival outcomes for regional Australians are 20-30 per cent worse than Australians living in a metropolitan area.
The Find Cancer Early program was created by Cancer Council Western Australia and adapted by Cancer Council Tasmania to improve cancer outcomes in the state by increasing cancer symptom awareness and encouraging Tasmanians to visit their doctor.
We know that people are more likely to survive cancer if it’s found early. We also believe your postcode should not define your cancer outcome.
Explore the website to discover important information to help you identify potential early symptoms of bowel, lung, and skin cancers, and learn what you need to do if you notice a symptom.
Adults of all ages are encouraged to explore the website to learn about the early symptoms of three of the most common cancers in Tasmania.
Share our symptom checklist with family, friends and colleagues over 40 so that they can Find Cancer Early for the best chance of successful treatment and survival.
A Message from Regional General Practitioners
Take 30 seconds to listen to regional GPs covering some of the early cancer symptoms you should be aware of.
Thank you Cancer Council Western Australia and the Western Australia Department of Health, for helping to bring the Find Cancer Early message to Tasmania.
Find Cancer Early and Cancer Council Tasmania pay respects to the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and acknowledge Elders past, present and emerging.
