Why spotting cancer early is important

Early diagnosis of cancer can lead to treatment that can save lives. Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, before it has spread is more likely to be treated successfully. Find out more about spotting cancer early here.

Cancer screening saves lives

Taking advantage of regular cancer screening programmes available to you can significantly improve the chances of catching any cancers in their early, and therefore more easily treatable, stages. There are three types of cancer screening for adults in England, breast, bowel and cervical. Find out more here.
