Cancer in the family (VIC) (leaflet)

This brochure is for people with a family history of cancer to help them decide if they would benefit from visiting a family cancer centre. One in two Australians will develop cancer in their lifetime. It is therefore not uncommon for several members of the same family to develop cancer, though in most cases the cancers will be unrelated.
