If you have any doubts about your health – it’s time to speak up.
Found early, cancer can be cured, treated, managed and lived with. Take time to get to know your body and the signs to watch for. Be aware of any changes. If a change lasts, get it checked by a doctor.
The information on this site is to help you understand the signs and symptoms of the most common cancers. If you think you have any of these symptoms, don’t panic, many symptoms of cancer are also those of non-cancer illnesses which may need treatment.
If you are worried:
- Tell your doctor straight away
- Get it sorted
- Move on with your life
Attend your screening appointment and any tests or hospital appointments that your doctor recommends. This will help detect any early signs of cancer.FIND OUT ABOUT REGULAR CHECKS
