Abstract

This review provides a comprehensive synthesis of population-level cancer statistics and other key information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people alongside comparative figures for non-Indigenous Australians. It includes general information on the extent of cancer, including: incidence, hospitalisation and mortality. The review also provides information on the extent of cancer for specific cancers: lung, cervical, breast, prostate, liver, pancreatic and colorectal (bowel). Finally, the review discusses issues surrounding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s use of cancer services.
