Trans Care: Trans People and Cancer

As part of the Trans Care Project, a joint initiative of the Transgender Health Program and Transcend Transgender Support & Education Society (with funding by the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition), local and international experts in transgender care worked with local members of the transgender community to create 7 sets of guidelines for health and social service providers in BC, and 17 health information booklets for transgender people and loved ones.

This consumer booklet provides some information about risks for cancer for trans people and trans-specific cancer screening recommendations.

Among other things this booklet: explains what cancer is, examines factors that increase the risk of getting cancer for transgender individuals, discusses different types of cancer and lists local cancer resources.
