Information and support regarding cancer and COVID-19

Cancer Council understands that Australians undergoing cancer treatment, cancer survivors and their families and friends may have questions in relation to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus and the illness it causes, COVID-19.

If you have cancer your immune system may not be as strong as it is normally so you may feel concerned about the risks associated with COVID-19.

Generally, people with cancer should continue to follow any specific advice or standard precautions recommended by their health care practitioners to minimise your risk of infection, during and after treatment.

For more information and if you need further assistance call Cancer Council on 13 11 20 for any cancer-related information and support.
