Signs and symptoms of cancer – guides for patients

Date:

Even if you choose to complete your screening you still need to know your own body and to recognise when something is different for you. Beyond this simple message, it is helpful to know some of the signs and symptoms of the most common cancers. Please download or print off the leaflets below and use them to support a conversation with your GP or even a loved one who you have concerns about.

Getting behind some of the national cancer awareness days can be one way to start engaging people in conversation.  The resources below also include easy read documents which are a fantastic resource for those with learning disabilities or for those who have English as a Second Language.
