Getting diagnosed

Your GP will ask you about your symptoms including what they are, when you get them and whether anything you do makes them better or worse.

They will decide about whether to refer you for tests or to a specialist. If you have a cancer you will have more tests to find out how big it is and whether it has spread, this is called staging.
