Lung cancer awareness month

Lung Cancer Awareness Month is now in its eighth year and takes place throughout November.

The campaign aims to encourage people displaying the symptoms of lung cancer to visit their GP.

Lung cancer is the UK’s biggest cancer killer. It is the most common cause of death from cancer for both men and women, claiming almost 35,000 lives a year. Early detection of lung cancer makes it more treatable, so encouraging people to recognise symptoms such as a persistent cough and see their doctor sooner could save lives.
