This page was originally set up to support patients whilst surgeries stood down non-urgent work for the accelerated covid vaccine booster roll-out.
We have kept the page online as it provides a useful go to page for when you have cancer symptoms or think you have cancer.
Please see the page below and contact us and we will assess your condition and act accordingly.
It's normal to worry if you have potentially serious symptoms, or if you have been referred urgently to hospital, but the vast majority of people (more than 90%) referred to cancer services DO NOT actually have cancer.
This list cannot possibly cover all the symptoms that might indicate cancer. If you are worried that you have cancer, or have a symptom that you are not sure about, please contact us.
Please visit our get help summary page to be signposted to other sources of help.
PLEASE NOTE: You can print this page for offline reading or to pass to a friend or relative who does not have internet access.
This is the print version of the page at ivy.gs/cancer and is therefore limited in functionality. We encourage you to try and access this page online or ask a relative or friend to access the page on your behalf.
PLEASE NOTE: Having any of these symptoms does not automatically mean you have cancer. In fact, most people with these symptoms will not have cancer. This page cannot list all possible cancer symptoms. Therefore if you are unsure or concerned that you might have cancer, please contact us.
Links provided all point to official NHS.UK advice for your information only. If you are unsure, please contact us.
