Fact Sheets

The following fact sheets were developed to give the reader a general overview of some of the myths and misconceptions that surround cancer. For World Cancer Day 2014 we are focusing once again on four key myths, which we aim to 'debunk' through the fact sheets and their supporting evidence sheets. The fact sheets provide key facts and figures as well as important advocacy messages.

Myth 1: We don't need to talk about cancer Myth 2: There are no signs or symptoms of cancer
