Having a fever means your body temperature is higher than normal. Something inside your body, such as an infection, has caused your temperature to rise. Some cancers, drugs and other treatment can also cause fever. Make sure you have a thermometer at home, keep it clean and read the manufacturer’s instructions first.

Learn how to take a temperature reading correctly so seek advice from your medical team about taking a reading accurately. 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

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.

Keeping a daily record of your temperature is very important, so use a journal to record it. We’ve popped a thermometer and journal in Kit for Cancer case..
