Get checked - Women

A cancer prevention plan for women

Finding cancer early improves your chances of successful treatment and long-term survival. Look for:

lumps, sores or ulcers that don't heal

unusual changes in your breasts - lumps, thickening, unusual discharge, nipples that suddenly turn inwards, changes in shape, colour or unusual pain

coughs that don't go away, show blood, or a hoarseness that hangs around

weight loss that can't be explained

any loss of blood, even a few spots between periods or after they stop

moles that have changed shape, size or colour, or an inflamed skin sore that hasn't healed

blood in a bowel motion

persistent changes in toilet habits, or

persistent abdominal pain or bloating.

Symptoms often relate to more common, less serious health problems. However, if you notice any unusual changes, or symptoms persist, visit your doctor.
