Cancer and coronavirus

If you spot any symptoms which could indicate cancer, don’t just sit worrying about it at home – you can still contact your GP, usually by telephone or on-line. They will be able to advise on whether you need to get checked. If you have an urgent appointment for a diagnostic test, or are having treatment already it is important that you attend your appointments.  The team looking after you will be able to advise on how to do this, if you are in doubt.
