When someone suspects they have a head or neck condition or symptoms they are worried about, ignoring the potential problem is the worst thing they can do, especially in the early stages of cancer.

Being aware of the telltale symptoms is actually very important. Knowing about the most important signs of head and neck cancer or other diseases and obtaining urgent medical advice and treatment is vital.

It’s amazing how much can now be done! Modern treatments are increasingly successful in achieving a cure and many types of treatment are more effective than ever, less invasive and more cosmetically acceptable.

This highly proactive charity continues to push the boundaries in medical research, clinical procedures and patient care. Working alongside consultants and medical staff throughout the UK, Get a Head play a pivotal role in our fight against these diseases.
