Check4Cancer launches new online service

Provider of early cancer detection and genetic services Check4Cancer has launched its new brand and website bringing together all of its cancer services onto one platform.

The new integrated service aims to make it easier to access cancer screening and diagnostic tests for people concerned about cancer, especially for those who have missed out on appointments during the pandemic.

Cancer Research UK’s latest figures suggest as many as 200,000 people per week have not been screened for breast, bowel and cervical cancer, resulting in hundreds of people with cancer going undiagnosed. It is estimated that there will be 18,000 excess cancer deaths in the first 12 months of the pandemic.

Gordon Wishart, chief medical officer at Check4Cancer and visiting professor of Cancer Surgery at Anglia Ruskin School of Medicine, said: ‘Many of our tests can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. By offering all of our cancer screening services under one umbrella, this new online service will make it quick and easy for people to get tested. Early detection is key in our fight against cancer.’
