Cancer Council happy for CQ to pick up phone

WHETHER it's questions on diagnosis, treatment or you simply need a listening ear... the Cancer Council is waiting to take your call.

More than 800 people in Central Queensland picked up the phone this year to reach out to the Cancer Council's 13 11 20 support line.

New figures show that 20% of callers sought help with practical issues relating to cancer since January.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said the support line answered all questions about all cancers, from general information to early detection, diagnosis and treatment.
