Cancer is one of the most serious health problems affecting NT and other Australian women. It is one of the most common causes of death, and has a major physical, emotional, financial and social impact on affected women and their families. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Australian women, followed by bowel, melanoma of skin, lung and lymphoid cancers. However, lung cancer causes more deaths than breast cancer because the survival rate is much lower for lung cancer than breast cancer.
