Key signs and symptoms of cancer

It is important to know your body and to tell your doctor if you notice a change which is not normal for you.

  • Anyone can develop cancer, but it’s more common as we get older – most cases are in people aged 50 or over
  • Don’t just put something new or different about your body down to things like getting older. If you notice any unusual or persistent changes, go and see your doctor
  • The symptoms below are more likely to be caused by something far less serious than cancer, but they could be a sign of the disease
  • Spotting cancer early means treatment is more likely to be successful
