Worried about a symptom you think may be cancer?

Tell your doctor.

Cancer screening saves lives, we here to help you understand

the symptoms of cancer particularly colorectal, lung, prostate

and breast.


Our dedicated team County Durham to understand the symptoms

of the area’s most commonly diagnosed cancers; colorectal, lung,

prostate and breast.

You can arrange for our team to talk to you on:

  • A one to one basis

  • Deliver a workplace workshop

  • Or attend a community event


The team can help facilitate appointments and screening, support you to report symptoms.

Finding and treating cancer at an early stage can save lives. Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, is more likely to be treated successfully. If cancer spreads, effective treatment becomes more difficult, and generally a person’s chances of surviving are much lower.

Be Clear on Cancer is a cancer awareness campaign led by Public Health England, working in partnership with the Department of Health and North Cancer Alliance. Its aim is to encourage people to take up their offer for screening of breast, cervical and bowel cancers.
