The importance of checking for cancer symptoms

England’s top cancer doctor has urged people not to hesitate to get checked as new research revealed that nearly half of the public have concerns about seeking help during the coronavirus pandemic. One in 10 people would not contact their GP even if they had a lump or a new mole which did not go away after a week, the survey found. Another third of people would worry about seeking help, according to polling carried out by Portland. Getting coronavirus or passing to family were among the top reasons that people would not come forward when they have cancer symptoms along with fears that they could be a burden to the health service.
