Symptoms of cancer
In general, early detection gives a better chance of cure. Some of the most common symptoms of cancer are:
- A lump
- An ulcer, which does not heal
- Blood in the stool
These symptoms can often be signs of other diseases than cancer. But if you notice anything unusual about your body, or any of the mentioned symptoms, it is important to see your doctor and be examined.

The Danish healthcare system
The Danish public healthcare system, in general, offers free examination if you become ill or if you need a preventative examination. Most treatments are free or subsidised. Every citizen in Denmark is assigned to a General Practitioner, who can be contacted in the case of illness.
