Norwegian Cancer Society

The Norwegian Cancer Society (NCS) is one of the largest organisations in Norway representing the voices of those affected by cancer.

We have 116 000 members, 27 000 volunteers and 190 employees, who are all dedicated to promoting cancer cause.

NCS works continuously to improve society’s attitude to the prevention and treatment of cancer. We fight cancer locally, nationally and globally through research and preventive measures, information, support, advice and lobbying.

Our main priorities

The Norwegian Cancer Society’s purpose is to work to prevent and fight cancer and to improve quality of life for patients and their families. Our vision is «a life without cancer».

We lead the way

The Norwegian Cancer Society have introduced a number of vital improvements within the field of cancer. Mammogram screening, the Norwegian Cancer Registry, the Varde centres for patients and their families, and cancer coordinators in the municipalities are just some of the measures we have initiated.
