Fever is a common symptom in people with all types of cancers. Check your temperature every day. Your temperature is usually at its lowest in the early hours of the morning and highest in mid afternoon. but generally, it stays around 36.5 and 37.0°c

A high temperature is a normal response to infection. Learn how to take a temperature reading correctly so seek advice from your medical team about taking a reading accurately.

Remember if your temperature is 38°C or higher, contact your medical team immediately, or go to the hospital emergency department. This usually means there is something wrong somewhere and could be a sign of a very serious infection.

We have popped thermometer in KIT  and keep a record of your temperature in the journal.
