Hello Evie12

I'm sorry to hear that your husband has had some ongoing health concerns recently which has led to his GP referring him to see a specialist. 

It's understandable that you're feeling anxious about what may be causing these symptoms but try to stay positive and remember that there could be many causes for this problem other than cancer. Hopefully, he won't have to wait too long to see the specialist and they will be able to arrange the necessary investigations to give you some answers and reassurance. 

Best wishes,
