Lack of knowledge of cancer symptoms17th August 2009
A poll of 4,000 people by Cancer Research UK has found that 19% of male respondents and 10% of female respondents could not name any symptoms of cancer.
Sara Hiom, director of health information at Cancer Research UK, said: "It’s really important that people can recognise cancer symptoms and feel that they can report concerns to their GP at an early stage. While it’s good news that most people correctly named some cancer symptoms, we’re concerned by the number of people who drew a complete blank."
