In and Around Catz CATS Cancer Awareness I’m Ellie, the welfare officer of CATS (cancer awareness in teenagers and young people society). Basically we’re part of a charity trying to promote awareness of cancer and possible symptoms in young people — this age group (16–25) has the one of the greatest numbers of late diagnosis of all age groups, thus resulting in a worse prognosis, which perhaps could have been avoided. The main things would be to: check your breasts or testes once a month- if you notice any irregular swellings, lumps or discharge, If you’re experiencing persistent severe headaches, dizziness, vomiting, or eyesight and hearing problems, Any unexplained weight loss Constant fatigue (not because you’re going out till 3am then getting up at 6am to row!) A new mole or a change in the appearance of a pre-existing on Visit your GP! It’s usually nothing, but sometimes it is cancer. If anyone wants any support with this or has any questions, we have a CATS Cambridge facebook page, and just send us a message; my main role is supporting people effected by cancer. If you have any other questions feel free to either email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a message on FB (Eleanor Harding).
