If you notice something that's not normal for you, talk to your GP.
Getting cancer diagnosed at an early stage, when treatment is more likely to be successful, can make a real difference.
There are lots of different signs and symptoms of cancer. Talk to your doctor if you notice anything that's not normal for you.
Read our practical tips and advice for making the most of your GP appointment, whether it's by phone, video call or face to face.
Listening to your body means you're more likely to notice unusual changes. But there's no need to check yourself at a set time or in a set way.
Screening looks for early signs of cancer in people without symptoms. Find out about different types of cancer screening.
Your doctor might arrange for you to have tests or to see a hospital doctor (specialist) urgently. This is to investigate your symptoms further.
