It’s vital to be aware of changes to your body: whether that’s a lump that’s appeared, changes to your bowel habits, or a bloated tummy that you’ve experienced for weeks. Don’t just ignore them and hope they’ll go away.
Because where cancer is concerned, ‘going away’ is not going to happen. More importantly, the earlier you’re diagnosed and treated, the less extreme your treatment is likely to be and the better your chances of long-term survival.
