What it is

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE

If you have an unexplained pain or notice changes in your body it can be a worrying time.

Without expert medical knowledge it’s hard to know what condition lies behind the symptoms.

This is where our Symptom Checker can help. This tool allows you to search a body from head to toe and home in on the cause for a particular set of symptoms. It’s an interactive guide which uses video, diagrams and articles to explain a wide range of conditions and their treatment in complete, yet understandable detail.

The process

USE YOUR MOUSE TO CHECK OUT THE SYMPTOMS

Symptom Checker is truly interactive. Just select the part of the body that is affected and the type of symptom, injury, test or treatment that you want to know more about and you will be given a range of options.

Choose the most relevant option and you will be taken to our Online Encyclopaedia to find the information you need.
