Get advice from 111 now if:
- your skin or the whites of your eyes turn yellow
- you're being sick for more than 2 days
- you have symptoms that you are worried about, but are not sure where to get help
111 will tell you what to do. They can arrange a phone call from a nurse or doctor if you need one.
See a GP if you have:
- a lump in your tummy
- lost a noticeable amount of weight over the last 6 to 12 months without trying
- other symptoms of liver cancer that get worse or do not get better after 2 weeks
These symptoms are very common and can be caused by many different conditions.
Having them does not definitely mean you have liver cancer. But it's important to get them checked by a GP.
This is because if they're caused by cancer, finding it early makes it more treatable.
What happens at the GP appointment
The GP may feel your tummy. They may also listen to your chest.
The GP may refer you to see a specialist in hospital for more tests if they think you have a condition that needs to be investigated.
This may be an urgent referral, usually within 2 weeks, if you have certain symptoms. This does not definitely mean you have cancer.
