Cancer

Cancer can be a scary word but we are lucky to live in a time where there is now a range of effective treatments we can apply for many of these diseases, for patients of all ages.

Early diagnosis and fast-tracked treatment can have a considerable impact on cancer, and consulting your primary care provider is the first step. If you’re experiencing unusual symptoms or you’ve noticed a lump or bump on your body that wasn’t there before, it’s probably nothing to worry about but it’s important to get it checked.
