Get to know your body, and what’s normal for you. If you have an unexplained change in your body, your GP wants to know. Chances are, it’s nothing serious, but if it’s cancer, the time to know is now.
Why? Most people survive early stage cancer, but sadly that’s not true of late stage cancer. Seeing your GP promptly could save your life.
It’s normal to see your GP about any one of the unexplained symptoms below. If any one of them applies to you, see your doctor as soon as possible.
You might find it helpful to print out our symptoms checker; tick any box that applies to you, and show it to your GP. You’re not wasting anyone’s time by getting it checked out. Don’t wait for the symptom to get worse before you see your doctor.
The risk of most cancers increases with age. 9 out of 10 cases are in people aged 50 and over.
