A ROADSHOW raising awareness of the early signs of different forms of cancer stopped off in Cramlington last week
The event, at the Manor Walks shopping centre, was part of the National Health Service’s Be Clear on Cancer campaign to raise awareness of the warning signs for bowel, breast, lung, prostate, oesophageal and skin cancers.
Cramlington GP Duncan Leith, one of those taking part in the campaign, said: “I want my patients to recognise if they have any signs and symptoms they think may be cancer and come and tell me.
“There is nothing to be embarrassed about, and it’s better to know what’s going on.
“If it is not serious, your mind will be put at rest.
“However, if it is a serious condition, then the earlier it is diagnosed the more treatable it is. Visiting your doctor could save your life.
“We want our patients to recognise and tell us about any possible signs and symptoms of cancer they think they have.
“That way we can fast-track them for early diagnosis and treatment.”
