Spotting cancer early saves lives

Get Involved

Increasing the number of people who are diagnosed with cancer earlier is important in improving survival rates from all types of cancers. You can get involved with our two public awareness campaigns – Highlight Cancer and Deflate Cancer - which aim to improve knowledge of cancer symptoms and risk factors to help aid earlier diagnosis.

Highlight Cancer works on building a network of ambassadors within the community who can raise awareness locally, whilst Deflate Cancer visits community locations using giant inflatable body organs to aid discussions on cancer as well as other health issues.

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.
