Cancer services and treatment management

Diagnosis

Signs and symptoms of cancer are not always easily picked up which is why a visit to your local medical clinic or general practitioner (GP) will help determine a diagnosis. If necessary your GP will refer you to a specialist for further tests.

Diagnostic testing

You will need a referral from your GP for relevant diagnostic testing. Some tests can only be performed at limited Northern Territory (NT) locations while others cannot be performed at all in the NT such as PET Scans, complex blood and biopsy tests.
