    Cancer is caused by abnormal reproduction of the body’s cells. Instead of reproducing to replace cells in the normal fashion, cells grow and reproduce at an abnormal, uncontrollable rate, creating tumours. A tumour in the breast will attack breast tissue and, in cases of invasive breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body. Invasive breast cancer is by far the most common form, accounting for around 80% of all the 50,000 cases diagnosed in the UK annually.

    Yes.  If you do not declare you have any  pre-existing health condition you are putting yourself at risk when travelling as should you need make a claim on your travel insurance your insurer may refuse it. This would mean you would need to cover any bills for emergency medical treatment and associated costs such as medical repatriation to the UK, accommodation and so on.

    No, it won’t, but it can make it harder and more expensive. A long term (chronic) medical condition is treated in law as a disability and so insurers cannot refuse you service. However they can impose restrictions – such as excluding cover for any conditions for which you’ve been diagnosed – or charge you a higher premium. Because Fish is a disability insurance specialist we are able to source effective and highly competitive pre-existing medical conditions insurance.
