Cancer of unknown primary (CUP)

Cancer of unknown primary (CUP) is when there is cancer in the body but the place where it started cannot be found.

It is rare cancer that affects both men and women and is more common in people over the age of 60.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
