However it is important to understand that the internet is open to anyone who wishes to publish information and there is no regulation of the information or its accuracy.

Cancer Council Australia has developed a free search tool called the Cancer Directory. Using this tool, it is possible to search for a wide range of publications and resources in languages other than English. If you speak a language other than English and would like to speak to someone about cancer in your language you can connect to our cancer nurses on 13 11 20 through an interpreter.
