Finding Cancer Early Saves Lives

14/10/2020

A new television advert is encouraging the public to contact their GP if they are experiencing potential cancer symptoms.

While the number of urgent cancer referrals is back up to 85% of pre-COVID levels, there are some people who may have worrying symptoms who are still not contacting their GP.

If you’ve had unexplained blood that doesn’t come from an obvious injury (such as blood in your poo or pee), an unexplained lump, weight loss which feels significant to you or an unexplained pain that lasts three weeks or more, it could be a sign of cancer.

It’s probably nothing serious, but finding cancer early makes it more treatable, so just speak to your GP.

Your NHS is here to see you, safely.

Please see the TV advert by clicking here.
