The earlier cancer is diagnosed the more likely is treatment to be successful. In June 2015 the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published an updated guideline for general practitioners so that the signs and symptoms of possible cancers could be recognised earlier and the right tests performed faster. It also produced information to help the general public recognise common signs and symptoms of possible cancer so that people would visit their doctor sooner. Health experts predict earlier diagnosis may save thousands of lives each year.
The charity, Sense About Science, has released a new edition of their guide, Making Sense of Screening, today. The aim of the guide is to provide the public with valuable information to improve their understanding of screening programmes and to address the sometimes unrealistic expectations of what screening can deliver.
