LGBTQI+ People and Cancer

Cancer can affect anyone, but the experience can be different for different people. For lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+) people, discrimination and barriers to care can add to the stress of a cancer diagnosis and having treatment. For information on how to manage practical, physical and emotional issues related to a cancer diagnosis as an LGBTQI+ person, and for tips on finding inclusive care, see LGBTQI+ People and Cancer.
