Notts County Council backing Be Clear on Cancer '˜Blood in Pee' campaign

Nottinghamshire County Council is supporting the national Be Clear on Cancer '˜Blood in Pee' campaign which aims to highlight the key symptoms of kidney and bladder cancers, and encourages people displaying them to see their doctor immediately.

Early diagnosis of bladder and kidney cancer increases the chances of survival.

Other signs of bladder cancer include needing to pee very often or very suddenly, pain while peeing and signs of kidney cancer include a pain below the ribs that doesn’t go away and a lump in your stomach.

The campaign carries the message: “If you notice blood in your pee, even if it’s ‘just the once’, tell your doctor.”
