While cancer is generally more common as we get older, you can develop cancer at any age. It’s really important, even during a pandemic, not to put off contacting your doctor if you have a new symptom such as a lump, or a change in your body that hasn't gone away.

Get to know your body and know the symptoms to look out for. Most symptoms are due to something less serious than cancer, but if it is cancer, the earlier it is found, the better.

There are a number of ways you can consult with your health professional. In addition to an initial phone discussion, new telehealth methods are now being widely used as well as in-person appointments.

Your doctor is there to look after your health as usual. Contact them to arrange an appointment.

Cancer screening can help protect your health through early detection, even if you don’t have any symptoms of the disease. Simple screening tests look for particular changes and early signs of cancer before it has developed or before any symptoms emerge. Visit for more information.
