A message from Cancer Council Western Australia

Published on Wednesday, 17 August 2022 at 1:50:10 PM

Despite these uncertain times, it's still important to talk to your doctor if you are over 40 and have coughed up blood, or had blood in your poo or pee, or noticed any of the following for more than 4 weeks:
  • Problems peeing
  • Runny poo
  • Losing weight (without trying)
  • Finding it hard to breathe
  • An unusual pain, lump or swelling anywhere in your body
  • A new or changed cough (that doesn't go away)
  • A new or changed spot on your skin
It doesn't mean you've got cancer – often, it turns out to be something less serious. However, telling your doctor as soon as possible ensures any tests or treatment can begin early.
