Cancer

Being told they have cancer is something most people worry about at one time or another. This section covers every type of cancer individually, for example breast cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer. It also explains what cancer is, the types of screening that are available for cancer, how cancer is diagnosed and the treatments that are available. If you are worrying that you might have cancer (“Are my symptoms serious?” or “What is the lump I can feel?”) you can find relevant information here in our doctor-authored leaflets.
