Most people experience symptoms and begin by seeing their GP. If the GP thinks that the symptoms may be caused by cancer, s/he will examine the patient and refer them on to a specialist at the hospital for tests and treatment if necessary (Urgent 2 week referral).
Information about some of the more common tests can be viewed in diagnosis and tests.
For information about where particular tests and treatments take place see cancer services.
