Information is provided based on the answers given in the Healthcheck questionnaire, which considers the presence of various relevant factors, e.g. family history, lifestyle factors, occupation. The information provided is responsive to the information entered (risk factors), but is not personalised to you. In other words, a person that enters the same risk factors will receive the same information, and the information is not responsive to unknown factors.
Information about the definition, main symptoms, age/gender usually affected, has been compiled from medical resources such as the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Clinical Knowledge Summaries database, NHS Choices and by our in-house clinicians. A full list of references is available at the end of these FAQs.
