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.

Doctor uses photos as medication in unique therapy

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-30/p ... ng/8383740

Sitting in his consulting room, Doctor Yao Zhang looks over to a bookcase with photos displayed on the shelves and says with a laugh: "I use the photos as a medication".

The keen landscape and nature photographer has worked in hospitals in China and Australia, including the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) in Sydney, but now lives in Naracoorte in south-east South Australia where he is finishing his training as a GP registrar.

He was one of only two overseas-trained doctors taken on by the RPA in 2010.

During his time with the RPA, health problems again struck and he was treated for bowel cancer.

Photo: Dr Yao Zhang in his consulting room at Naracoorte, South East South Australia.

"The pathological side [of illnesses] is a lot easier to deal with, but the mental side is totally different," Dr Zhang said.
