Are Aboriginal People more likely to be Diagnosed with more Advanced Cancer?


Australian Aboriginal people have poorer survival than non-Aboriginal people after diagnosis of most cancer types.1

Spread of disease at diagnosis is a major prognostic factor for cancer, and differences in spread of disease partly explain the disparities in cancer survival between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.1,2
