I honestly don’t know what would have happened had I have not gone for the check up. I don’t think I would have gone to my doctor with the cough or the breathlessness because I just presumed it was one of those things, so I probably would have carried on in the same vein and things most probably would have got worse. Instead, I can look forward to growing old.

Spot the Symptoms

Early symptoms of lung cancer are often very subtle and easy to ignore. As soon as you spot a difference in your health, you need to take action. It could save your life. We are here to help you recognise that symptoms are in fact symptoms. We are here to help you feel able to go to your GP and give them the information they need to be referred as quickly as possible.
