If you notice a lump, change in a mole or abnormal bleeding you should make an appointment to have this checked by a Doctor. If you have persistent problems such as, a cough, hoarseness, change in bowel habit or unexplained weight loss, these should also prompt a review with a doctor. It is recommended that women check their breasts regularly, have a mammogram and cervical smear test done in accordance with Health Guidelines. Men should check their testicles periodically and discuss any prostatic symptoms with their Doctor. Wearing sun protection, examining your skin for changes, and stopping smoking are simple risk reduction measures.
