You know your body best so speak to your doctor if something doesn’t seem right.
National screening programmes can help diagnose cancers at an early stage, when treatment is more likely to be successful. Cancer screening is for those without symptoms, so if you’ve noticed a change, please don’t wait for screening – tell your doctor as soon as possible.
