Message from the UK cancer community: do not ignore symptoms
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, fewer people are contacting their GP for non-coronavirus related health concerns. But cancer hasn’t stopped and the NHS is still here for you if you need it.
If you think there’s something wrong, and you think it might be cancer, help the NHS to help you by contacting your GP surgery.
If you have any of the following symptoms for no obvious reason, contact your GP surgery right away:
- bleeding that doesn’t come from an injury
- weight loss
- loss of appetite
- a new or growing lump
- or any type of pain that won’t go away.
Search online for Be Clear on Cancer for a fuller list of the signs and symptoms of cancer.
If you have cancer, your hospital doctor will discuss with you how you can be cared for safely at this time.
