Over half of Brits don’t know symptoms of blood cancer
Only 1 in 10 people are confident they know the common symptoms of blood cancer despite it being one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the UK.
Blood cancer symptoms can be varied and often very vague. People can have just one or many of these before diagnosis – and in some cases, none at all:
Persistent and unexplained tiredness
Unexplained weight loss
Unexplained bruising and/or bleeding
Drenching night sweats
Lumps or swellings in the neck, head, groin or stomach
