You can live with cancer!
The possibility of your beating cancer, particularly in Australia, is increasing every year. From 1986 to 1997 those still living after five years from diagnosis increased by 20% for men and 15% for women. These rates increased again during the years 1998-2004. The 5 year survival rate for prostate cancer is now 85% whilst breast cancer is 88%. The incidence of melanoma in Australia is still among the world's highest, yet the 5 year survival rate is more than 90% for both men and women. There are many reasons given for this increase but all of them point to greater hope for those coping with cancer.
