Life Insurance and Income Protection After Cancer
Cancer is a scary word and a scarier illness. According to Cancer Australia, a government initiative, by 2017 the risk of developing cancer by the age of 85 is 1 in 2. The most common types of cancer in Australia are breast cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma and cancer of the colon. Although the incidence of cancer has increased substantially over the last decade, mortality rates have fallen. Cancer awareness, screening, detection and treatment have all improved significantly. This has resulted in many insurance companies having to change their attitudes to the perceived risk a cancer survivor presents.
