Clinical Oncology in the South and Southwest
Clinical Oncology is best served by your own increased levels of vigilance. Being aware of signs and symptoms of different types of cancer is one way of helping to reduce your risk and detect cancers early.
Awareness and screening programs are important elements in the fight against cancer, increasing the detection rate, making early detection more likely and encouraging preventative lifestyle measures. National screening programs do not exist for all cancers. This is for a number of reasons but mainly because of the potential for unnecessary anxiety to the patient and the potential harm screening may cause. In developing screening programs oncology hospitals in Plymouth and the South have carefully assessed the potential harms and benefits to the local population and have in place a number of resources and projects.
