Aboriginal Australians are less likely to be diagnosed with cancer, but significantly more likely to die of the disease.
Often, symptoms and diagnoses are ignored because of the fear surrounding cancer.
Lateline spoke to some Aboriginal people about how they dealt being diagnosed and how they're trying to break down taboos in their communities.
