Abstract
This study examined the knowledge of the German-speaking population about cancer, cancer prevention and cancer treatment, and which attitudes are prevalent towards the affected persons. In particular, we are dealing with questions such as: How are the individual cancer cases known and how are they assessed? How are the different methods of cancer treatment assessed? What cancer warning signals does the population know? What is the significance of cancer in the consciousness of the population? A second aim of the investigation was to identify psychosocial determinants of the use of cancer screening tests. The study thus serves as the basis for preventive medicine measures.
