Some types of cancer are linked to patient associations, where patients and their families have formed an association to offer support to people with the same diagnosis.
Patient associations are listed under the individual cancer diagnosis. One in three cancer diagnoses are preventable. Find out how below. Finally, you will find information about death and statistics about cancer in Norway.
Some of the brochures we are linked to have been published by cancer associations in other countries and some have been published by the Norwegian Cancer Society. The content of the brochures has been updated and is accurate. Consult your doctor about anything you are unclear about.
