More people are surviving cancer than ever before and getting checked early plays a big part

Why earlier is better

Getting checked early is one of the main reasons why more people are surviving cancer. Our survivor stories show why it’s so important to know the signs and symptoms to look out for, and to see your GP practice if you’re concerned about any unusual or persistent changes to your body. It's probably nothing serious, but it's best to get checked. It's also important to take part in screening when invited - it can often find cancer before it can be seen or felt.
