Below is a link to a video from today’s ‘Online Cancer Awareness Session’ covering the importance of early cancer detection. They noted that many people have been avoiding contacting their G.P during lockdown and that this has led to an increase in cancers being detected at a later stage than would have happened normally.
The aim of the project who made the video is to encourage the people of Leeds to make use of the free NHS cancer screening services that are available i.e. bowel, breast, lung, prostate and cervical cancers, as well as helping the public to recognise early signs and symptoms and raise awareness of the importance of early detection and the need to contact their G.P.
