I acted early, I survived

Depending on a woman’s cultural background she may believe breast cancer is contagious, that talking about the disease will bring it on, that it is associated with a ying and yang imbalance or perhaps that the development of breast cancer reflects a form of punishment for past behaviour.

A range of resources have been produced to inform women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds about breast cancer symptoms, the importance of early detection, and to assist women diagnosed with breast cancer in making decisions about their treatment and support.
