Cancer Awareness Roadshow to visit Knowsley

by Laura Johnston

Cancer Research UK’s ‘Cancer Awareness Roadshow’ is set to visit Knowsley next week. You can chat to a nurse and get information on cancer screening, symptoms and reducing cancer risks.

The roadshow will visit Volair Huyton, Longview Drive on Tuesday 19 September and Wednesday 20 September from 10am to 4pm both days.

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) nurses will be able to let you know about the simple things you can do to reduce your risk of cancer, including changes you can make to lead a healthier lifestyle such as being more active, eating a healthier diet, maintaining a healthy weight, stopping smoking and cutting down on alcohol.

To reduce your risk, it’s also important to take part in cancer screening programmes such as breast, bowel and cervical when you’re invited.

The team will have information and advice on how to spot cancer, as it is much more likely to be treated successfully if picked up at an early stage.

Cllr Christine Bannon, Knowsley Council Cabinet Member for Health, said:

“If you have any concerns an initial chat with one of the fantastic CRUK nurses could be a great first step, they help so many people through talking and listening and providing information and advice tailored to each individual. However, if you are worried about something don’t wait, make an appointment to speak to your GP.”
