Cancer Awareness Project
This month, a new local campaign in partnership with North Central London Cancer Alliance, is launching in Enfield to encourage individuals who have symptoms that may be suggestive of cancer to contact their GP practice.
Since the pandemic began there has been a significant downturn in cancer presentation and attendance to screenings. This may have serious implications as finding cancer early is crucial.
If you have any of the following symptoms:
- Unexpected bleeding, like blood in your poo, pee or spit
- Unexplained lump
- Unexplained pain that lasts three weeks or more
- Persistent cough that lasts three weeks or more
- Unexplained weight loss
You should contact your GP practice to arrange a check.
The way you make an appointment may have changed, but your GP practice is open for check-ups and screenings and healthcare professionals are available to see you safely.
