5. Seek the support you need

So your GP appointment is all booked, but what do you say when you meet them?

  • Explain you are worried you have cancer and don’t hesitate to ask for their support.
  • Share your symptom diary if you have one. Be very clear about your symptoms, stating you’ve been experiencing *insert symptoms* for *insert time period*.
  • Ask what diagnostic tests would need to be arranged and be clear how important it is to you that these be organised as soon as possible.
