Be clear on cancer

Knowing the signs of cancer could save your life

Cancer is a disease of our cells, where they have become abnormal. These cancer cells divide uncontrollably to make more and more abnormal cells; they invade and destroy healthy issues surrounding them, including organs. Learn more about cancer on the NHS website. 

Your risk of developing cancer can depend on your age, genetics and your lifestyle but it is believed that around 40% of cancers are preventable. Finding cancer early means it is easier to treat. Learn more about signs and symptoms of cancer on the NHS website.  

If you notice any possible cancer symptoms or any changes that are unusual for you, although it is unlikely to be cancer, it's important to speak to a GP so they can investigate.
