If you are worried about symptoms you might have, you should usually begin by seeing your GP. He or she will examine you, ask questions about your symptoms, and might ask you to have some tests, such as a blood test or x-ray.
Remember – in most cases, your symptoms will turn out to be caused by something other than cancer, but they can still be signs of illness and so you won't be wasting your doctor's time by getting them checked out.
If you don't know who your GP is or how to contact them, you find contact details of local GP's here.
