world head and neck cancer day
Tuesday, 27 July 2021
World Head and Neck Cancer Day is held on 27 July each year. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness about head and neck cancer in the general public and acknowledge the impact it has on people affected in our community.
In Australia there has been a 34% increase in head and neck cancer in the last 10 years, over 5,000 people are diagnosed each year and more than 17,000 people are living with the side effects of treatment.
In 2021 Head and Neck Cancer Australia's theme will be: There is no screening: Early detection is key.
