Help Us, Help You Abdominal Cancers

Published: Monday, 9th November 2020 Just a bit uncomfortable, it could be a sign of cancer

NHS England and NHS Improvement, together with Public Health England, launch new campaign ‘Help Us, Help You’ – ‘Abdominal Cancers’

Today, NHS England and NHS Improvement, together with Public Health England, are launching the ‘Abdominal Cancers’ phase of the ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign.

The campaign highlights that symptoms such as diarrhoea, feeling bloated or discomfort in the tummy area for three weeks or more could be signs of abdominal cancer and encourages anyone who has any of these tummy troubles to speak to their GP.

While it’s probably nothing serious, any of these symptoms could be an indication of something that needs treatment. If it is cancer, finding it early makes it more treatable and can save lives.

Your NHS is here to see you, safely. Help Us, Help You.  Just speak to your GP.
