About Head & Neck Cancer
Around 12,000 new cases of head and neck cancer are diagnosed in the UK each year. Read about symptoms, diagnosis and treatment here.
In the North West around 1,100 people a year are diagnosed with head and neck cancer – one of the worst rates in the UK. Men are three times more likely to be diagnosed with head and neck cancer than women.
North West Cancer Research teamed up with a host of local celebrities to highlight the early symptoms of the disease in a bid to encourage men to be more vigilant and to visit their GP.
The 2019 #SPEAKOUT campaign saw well-known names such as Mark Radcliffe, Graeme Sharp, Dave Spikey and John Parrott feature in an informative video that was shared across social media platforms during the campaign.
