Welcome to our website, I am delighted that you are visiting us and seeking to know more about cancer information.

Although cancer has been the number one killer in Hong Kong, scientific advancement along with medical technologies can help the patients relieve anxiety from cancer diagnosis. In fact, many types of cancers can be prevented by establishing healthy life styles. A thorough understanding of cancer causes and symptoms will help you to prevent or to detect cancer early.

Over the past 60 years, the Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society (HKACS) has always been at the forefront of fighting against cancer and shows its commitment to serve the people of Hong Kong; not only providing cancer prevention works, but also organising various educational activities to raise awareness of cancer including public talks, sharing and exhibitions. All these activities provide a chance for people to understand cancer and improve their eating styles in order to help prevent cancer. This is not only for your own benefit, but also for those of your next generations.

In addition, the duties of HKACS include organising professional seminars, workshops and nursing programmes for healthcare professionals; public talks and exhibitions for the general public; and the production of pamphlets, brochures and CD-ROMs of various types of cancer in Hong Kong. Through this website, you will have a better understanding of our works.

The number of visitors has been increasing since the implementation of our website. We shall continue to update the content in order to provide the latest cancer information to you. Moreover, if you have any enquiries or valuable advice about cancer, you are welcome to approach us. We rely on your support and participation to make our cancer information widely known and that we can also gain your endorsement of our dedicated work.

Thank you.
