Ask your doctor if immunotherapy is a suitable treatment for you. Only checkpoint immunotherapy for advanced melanoma is currently approved and reimbursed through the PBS in Australia. Immunotherapy for advanced kidney cancer and lung cancer is approved, and will probably be reimbursed in the near future.
For other cancers, it may be possible to access immunotherapy treatments through clinical trials. Speak with your treatment team for more information, and ask if you’re able to join a clinical trial.
