Blood Cancer Awareness Month


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

Persistent infection

Breathlessness.

Drenching night sweats

Lumps or swellings in the neck, head, groin or stomach

Bone/joint pain
