Attending for screening can help you to stay healthy. Screening aims to find changes early, often before they can be felt or seen, when treatments can be simpler and have a higher chance of being successful.
Some screening programmes can also lower your chance of developing certain problems in the first place. In Stockport we encourage everyone to be screened when invited even when you feel 100% healthy. All the free NHS screening programmes are offered in Stockport.
More and more men and women are surviving cancer. When cancers are found early, treatment is often simpler and more likely to be successful. Finding cancer early can make a difference. What can I do? Be aware of what is normal for you and if you notice anything usual, go and see your doctor as soon as possible. Take up the offer of cancer screening.
