Awareness and Early Diagnosis

This section contains information for all health professionals working to promote awareness and earlier diagnosis of cancer.

Improvements over the years mean more people are surviving cancer but cancer survival in the UK is still some way off the best in Europe, and rates vary even across the UK.

By diagnosing cancer at an earlier stage, and ensuring access to optimum treatment, it’s hoped that significant improvements in survival can be made.
