It’s appalling to think that 37% of people would actually think to delay getting symptoms checked because it would be difficult to make an appointment to see their GP.

Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a recent study out of the United Kingdom that outlines the extreme dangers associated with the lapse in cancer diagnosis.
In a report of the survey, "Delay Kills", “Cancer Research UK” says latest figures suggest if Britain were to match the best cancer survival rates in Europe, 11,500 fewer people would die every year. It claims that matching the European average would save a minimum of
6, 000 lives every year.
The experts have strong opinions saying that Britain’s poor record in early cancer diagnosis is to blame for death toll.
2,090 Britons were a part of the survey which asked questions about warning signs and symptoms of cancer (to prevent a lapse in cancer diagnosis).
What was shocking was that more than three quarters of respondents failed to mention pain, coughing, bladder and bowel problems. Two thirds failed to list bleeding, and only about a fourth of those surveyed mentioned weight loss or mole changes as part of the cancer diagnosis.
To quote the findings, what was most alarming was the attitude of the individual once they were made aware of this information.
Dr Harpal Kumar, Chief Executive of Cancer Research UK says, “37% of those who thought they had spotted potentially serious early signs of cancer said they might delay getting them checked because they were worried about what the result might be.”
Dr. Victor Marchione, Pulmonary Expert and Member of the Bel Marra Advisory Board furthered Kumar’s point by stating, “it’s appalling to think that 37% of people would actually think to delay getting symptoms checked because it would be difficult to make an appointment to see their GP. It’s unacceptable”.
