  • Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in Queensland.
  • The most effective proven method of intervention to reduce the incidence of and deaths from invasive cervical cancer is through regular screening (cervical cancer screen test) and treatment.

Breast cancer
  • Most common cancer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander females.
  • Rates of screening (mammograms) are lower in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women compared to non-Indigenous.
  • Early detection of breast cancer enables life saving treatment.
  • Breast screening now covers women aged 40-74.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Sexual health remains a significant public health issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
  • Untreated, STIs can make a woman more vulnerable to other infections and lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.
  • Regular check ups are recommended.
