Together We Will Beat Cancer

I have symptoms of cancer what should I do during the coronavirus outbreak?

You should still contact your doctor if you notice a change that isn’t normal for you or if you have any possible signs and symptoms of cancer.

One of the symptoms of coronavirus is a new continuous cough. It is important that you tell your GP everything about your cough. And whether you have any other symptoms such as unexpected weight loss, fatigue or loss of appetite. In some people, a continuous cough can also be a symptom of cancer and not coronavirus.

Even if you’re worried about what the symptom might be, or about getting coronavirus, don’t delay contacting them. Your worry is unlikely to go away if you don’t make an appointment. The symptom might not be due to cancer. But if it is, the earlier it’s picked up the higher the chance of successful treatment. You won’t be wasting your doctor’s time.

This short video explains the importance of going to your GP if you notice any possible cancer symptoms. It lasts for 31 seconds.
