Help Us Help You

The medical profession is concerned at the drop in the number of people seeking advice from their GP regarding possible cancer symptoms during the pandemic.

They understand that everyone is trying to stay safe at home but are worried that some people are putting off talking about symptoms or signs that could be cancer.

If notice a lump, a new pain, unusual bleeding or unexplained symptom you have had for a while you should contact your GP.
