What is Cancer?

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime.

Your risk of developing cancer can depend on your age, genetics and your lifestyle but it is believed that around 40% of cancers are preventable (Cancer Research UK)

This short video from Macmillan Cancer Support explains more About Cancer:

We know that if the signs of cancer are recognised and acted upon quickly a cancer is more likely to be diagnosed early and treated more successfully. 

You can find more information, advice and support on the Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support websites.
