Cancer Diagnosis and Moving to Australia Help Please?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am in my late 50s and plan to move for good to Australia in the next few years with my Australian girlfriend and marry her a couple of years after arrival. I have recently been diagnosed with a very low level prostate cancer contained within just my prostate, which the experts say is so low they do not advise any treatment. Rather, they have strongly advised me to go onto what is called "active surveillance" which is monitoring me and only doing some treatment is the cancer develops. They have told me it may not ever develop and if it stays at its low level there is no need for any treatment, given all treatment options have some rather nasty side effects affecting bowels and water works etc which are best avoided, unless treatment becomes essential due to the cancer growing. Active surveillance is a very accepted treatment in Australia my specialist urologist Dr ( who has worked there) tells me. My question is if I apply in a few years time to move to Australia and I have this low level cancer and am on active surveillance and have been in a relationship with my girlfriend with evidence for some 10 years and am planning to marry in Australia, I would still be allowed to make to move to the country? I would not face being blocked entry on any medical grounds?

 It is not a good idea to take migration advice from medicos.  Consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum.

If you count resorting to subclass 602 to keep visas alive while the client is as a success, Westly the Magnificent has a 100% success rate in medical cases. This includes clients afflicted by HIV+ (in the days when that almost always led to a visa refusal) Hep B, type 2 diabetes, a cochlear implant in a child, and so on.

An interesting case was a GP with 4 coronary bypasses who assured His Magnificence that these would not show on an x-ray and asked should he declare them? Even for those eager to lie to the honourable, the minister, the answer is obvious: If further medical intervention became necessary, there would no hope of convincing the honourable that you did not know you had 4 bypasses, and you could probably say goodbye to your visa, or citizenship.

I obtained a cardiologist's opinion which was (in paraphrase) He will either live a fairly normal life, or he will drop dead. There were no significant costs to see here.

“Westly the magnificent “. I’m laughing so hard right now. And referring to yourself in the 3rd person! 👍👍🤣🤣🤣

on a more serious note @bearnova64 definitely speak to westly and get a proper assessment and strategy. He’s been on the forum helping people for a long time. Good luck! 😀

The time to start worrying is when you address yourself in the second person, find yourself insulted, and are challenged to fight to the death.
