On 2 July 2013, a national 'reminder' campaign to raise awareness of the symptoms of lung cancer was launched. It will run until mid-August and will include TV, press, radio advertising and events.
Key messages highlight that finding lung cancer early makes it more treatable and will encourage people who have symptoms to their doctor straight away. A possible symptom of lung cancer is a persistant three-week cough
The lung cancer campaign increases the awareness of the key symptoms and encourages people to seek early advice from their GP. Lung cancer is the most common fatal cancer in the UK, but when detected at an early stage it can be treated successfully
Spire Cheshire Hospital work with Lifescan whose aim to reduce the impact of undetected illnesses through a range of designed health checks. Lifescan offer a lung check to people aged 40 years and over who are concerned about their lungs.
This is ideal for people who have either smoked in the past or have been exposed to secondary smoke at home or work, have worked with asbestos and hazardous chemicals or for those with a family history of lung cancer.
