I think that I might have symptoms of cancer – what should I do?

Make an appointment with your GP for a check-up – early detection of cancers is critical to their successful treatment.

The Health Improvement Team run a programme called ‘Get Checked’ that works with local people to increase early detection of breast, lung and bowel cancers.

More information about cancer and symptoms can be accessed via Macmillan Cancer Support , St Helens Cancer Support Group and Cancer Research UK.
