COMMENT - Symptoms warning

CANCER survival rates are thankfully higher than ever but in order to give ourselves an even greater chance of surviving we all need to wise up to the tell tale signs of the disease.

The courses being run by the Council’s public health team will be a great chance for people to learn more about cancer and rather than look at it as a morbid exercise we should all treat it as a wake up call.

It makes sense that as we all live longer the diagnosis rates will increase but it would help us all to be a bit more clued up on symptoms.
