Do you think it might be cancer?

Cancer can be symptomatic in many ways. On the other hand, cancer can also be asymptomatic, especially in the early stages.

Docrates Cancer Center specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care of cancer. Located in Finland’s capital, Helsinki, this state-of-the-art hospital is conveniently located offering direct access from major cities. An appointment with a specialist is arranged within just a few days, which means treatment can begin without delay – a vitally important factor in cancer treatment.

At Docrates, appointments with a specialist and further assessments are available right away. No referral is required.

We recommend a visit to the clinic, should you notice any of the following:

  • a lump, or area of tissue that feels unusual
  • retraction of the nipple
  • a skin lesion or a mole that has grown or changed
  • an ulcer on the skin or mucosa that is not healing well
  • persistent cough or hoarseness
  • trouble swallowing or persistent heartburn
  • jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • blood in urine, stools or sputum
  • changes in urination or passing stools
