WHAT IS CANCER:
As some of you may already know or have experienced, cancer has a huge impact on many people’s lives. Its thought that 1 in 2 people develop some form of cancer in their lifetime and there are over 300,000 cancer cases newly diagnosed every year in the UK.
It can affect anyone of any age, but it’s more common in those over the age of 50. The most common types are breast, lung, prostate and bowel cancer, but there are actually over 200 different kinds and they all have different symptoms and can affect the body in different ways.
So what exactly is cancer? Cancer is a disease where genetic changes in your body can cause a cell or multiple cells to grow and multiply more than they’re meant to. The cells grow in an abnormal way which can lead to something called a tumour.
And the way that these cells change in a tumour can sometimes also then disrupt core body systems, such as your immune system, hormones and blood, leading to other problems.
In some cases the tumour can also start to spread to other parts of the body, and this is known as metastases. These become secondary cancers and this stage of cancer can be harder to treat. This was a simplified explanation but it’s important for you to have this basic understanding so everything else makes sense later in the video.
So with cancer having the potential to cause so many problems and being so common, it’s super important to know what signs and symptoms to look out for, and how you can help get diagnosed sooner rather than later. Studies have shown that people who get diagnosed sooner have better survival rates, a better quality of life, and better care experiences.
CANCER SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS:
This video covers the common signs/symptoms of cancer that should prompt you to speak to your healthcare professional. Please remember that not every person with cancer has symptoms therefore if you feel something isn’t right or the way your body usually works has changed then please speak to your healthcare professional and don’t leave it – Spotting cancer early saves lives.
For more up to date information on cancer symptoms and signs please find the following information:
Once again please remember that in this video I’ve gone through the most common signs, but there are more, so always speak to your healthcare professional if you ever feel something with your body isn’t right or you notice a change in how your body works, and don’t just leave it. Also remember that having any of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean that you have cancer, but they’re red flags you need to get checked out. If the cause is not cancer and it’s another underlying problem, at least it can be investigated and treated sooner. And if it does end up being cancer, catching it early can make all the difference.
