Take part in a cancer screening test
Country SA PHN has collaborated with Cancer Council SA and Adelaide PHN to encourage South Australians to get screened and get on with living instead of worrying about the unknown. The campaign, which was first launched in 2019, encourages South Australians to take part in their regular bowel, breast and cervical screening tests.
Finding cancer early through screening dramatically increases your chance of survival. For example, 90 per cent of bowel cancers are curable if caught early. But in order for screening to work, people need to take control of their health and regularly have conversations with their GP about what screening tests are available to them.
