Lung Cancer

The symptoms don’t always mean you have cancer, but they do need your doctor’s attention.

Watch out for:

  • A persistent cough
  • Coughing up blood-stained phlegm
  • Repeated bouts of pneumonia or bronchitis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest discomfort
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of weight

Your GP will organise a chest X-ray and if necessary will arrange a referral to a specialist lung doctor who will
decide if you need further tests.

Remember! Early detection of lung cancer can make a difference to your chances of survival. If you have any of the symptoms listed above, see your doctor. Better still, reduce your risks of getting lung cancer by stopping smoking.
