The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (Persatuan Kebangsaan Kanser Malaysia), (NCSM), is the first not-for-profit cancer organisation in Malaysia that provides education, care and support services for people affected by cancer and the general public.
Established in 1966, we are a tax-exempt charity body registered under the laws of the Malaysian Societies Act and Registrar of Societies Malaysia. The Society was founded by the late Dato’ Dr S.K. Dharmalingam, Malaysia’s first oncologist, and was launched by then Prime Minister of Malaysia, the late YAB Tun Abdul Razak. NCSM is now under the distinguished patronage of His Royal Highness Sultan Paduka Seri Sultan Perak Darul Ridzuan, Sultan Nazrin Muizzudin Shah.
The Society is financed entirely by contributions and donations from the public.
We provide holistic cancer–related services to cancer patients, caregivers and the public through our five centres – Cancer and Health Screening Clinic, Nuclear Medicine Centre, Resource and Wellness Centre, Quit Smoking Clinic and the Children’s Home of Hope.
Our head office is in Kuala Lumpur and we have five other branches nationwide in Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Penang, Perak and Sarawak.
To ensure that no Malaysian fears cancer by creating an understanding of cancer that leads to prevention and early detection, and by providing the best possible care and support for those affected by cancer.
Living in a world without cancer.
