Be Clear On Cancer

Knowing the signs of cancer could save your life.

Be Clear On Cancer

GP's Advice:

"If you spot any signs of cancer, go to your doctor to get it checked. You're not wasting anyone's time and if it isn't serious, your mind will be put at rest. But if it is cancer, early diagnosis can make all the difference.

The sooner cancer is detected, the better the chances of successful treatment."

Be Clear on Cancer - the national campaign

'Be Clear on Cancer' is a national campaign developed by Public Health England which runs locally, regionally and nationally. The campaign aims to raise public awareness of symptoms of cancer and encourage people with symptoms to see their GP earlier.

Be Clear on Cancer has already been used to promote symptom awareness and early diagnosis of eight different cancers, as well a campaign about four key signs of many types of cancer called ‘Know 4 sure’.

Current lung cancer campaign

We are supporting the current Be Clear on Cancer campaign: Lung Cancer.

The campaign, which runs from 10 March to 30 April across England, aims to emphasise that early diagnosis of lung cancer can improve the chances of successful treatment and patient outcomes.
