DON’T IGNORE SYMPTOMS OF CANCER BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS-19!

DON’T IGNORE SYMPTOMS OF CANCER BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS-19!

It’s important to be aware of any unexplained changes to your body. These symptoms are often caused by other, non-cancerous illnesses, but it’s important to see your GP so they can investigate EVEN WHEN YOU ARE SELF-ISOLATING…

If your GP suspects cancer, they’ll refer you to a specialist – who will usually speak to you over the phone within 2 weeks.

Signs to watch out for-DO NOT IGNORE and ask for a telephone appointment with your GP to discuss the following:

Lumps: If you notice a lump in your breast or if you have a lump that’s rapidly increasing in size elsewhere on your body.

Coughing, chest pain and breathlessness: If you’ve had a cough for more than 3 week

The following changes in bowel if they have lasted for more than a few weeks:
blood in your poo
diarrhoea or constipation for no obvious reason
a feeling of not having fully emptied your bowels after going to the toilet
pain in your stomach (abdomen) or back passage (anus)
persistent bloating

Unexplained bleeding such as: blood in your urine
bleeding between periods
bleeding from your bottom
blood when you cough
blood in your vomit

If you have a Mole that:
changes shape or looks uneven
changes colour, gets darker or has more than 2 colours
starts itching, crusting, flaking or bleeding
gets larger or more raised from the skin

Unexplained weight: a loss of weight over the last couple of months that cannot be explained by changes to your diet, exercise or stress.
