I think most people would know breathlessness would be symptom, and a cough but I didn’t know that having a bad back can be a sign of lung cancer. I’d got no idea of that.

Lung cancer has still not recovered from the pandemic. There are thousands of missing lung cancer patients. Some, sadly, will have already died. Others, though, still have the chance of diagnosis and treatment, but we need to help them. We need to help them knows symptoms are in fact symptoms. We need to help them feel able to go to their GP and give them the information they need to be referred as quickly as possible. We need to support them through diagnosis and treatment. But this is no easy feat. We need your support so we can spread these vital messages to as many people as possible.

I was scared to go to the doctor with my cough and wheeze. I was aware that all this smoking I had done previously wasn’t good for me, so I knew it was likely to be bad news. But at the same time, I knew I had to go. I couldn’t delay any longer and just get it out of the way – one way or another.
