This section can help you find out more about cancer. It tells you what exactly cancer is, how it develops and what can cause cancer. There’s information on the most common signs and symptoms of cancer, different types of cancer, different treatments, available screening programmes and some cancer information leaflets that you can print out and keep with you.

 

If you have a question about cancer call our free and confidential support Nurseline on 0800 783 3339 to speak with a specialised nurse ( Monday – Friday, 9am – 1pm). You can also email us on nurseline@cancerfocusni.org.
