Cancer Care

Princess Alexandra Hospital provides comprehensive cancer diagnosis and treatment with an emphasis on caring for people across their entire journey to wellness.

Our expert team of doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners will work with you to decide on the best course of treatment and care. We also offer a dedicated team of Cancer Care Coordinators who will guide you through every step of your treatment journey with comprehensive educational and emotional support.

The type of treatment you receive will depend on your individual care plan, but might include chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. We have access to Queensland's most advanced treatment technology on-site, and we work with some of the nation's leading cancer researchers to continually improve the care we provide and our patients' health outcomes.

Queensland Youth Cancer Service

A cancer diagnosis during the adolescent and young adult years can be highly challenging for young people and their families. Being a young adult is not easy at the best of times – finances, work, study, sexuality, independence, peers…you name it, it’s all happening!

The Queensland Youth Cancer Service works in partnership with 15-25-year-olds and the cancer specialists in their hospital to ensure all aspects of their health and wellbeing are considered during treatment and beyond.

To contact the QYCS at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, call the AYA CNC Care Coordinator on 0427 191 189, Monday-Friday.

Visit the Queensland Youth Cancer Service for more information and referral forms.
