If lung cancer is found at an earlier stage, there is more chance of a better outcome.

It’s important to know the symptoms of lung cancer as although lung cancer occurs mostly in people aged 60 and over, it can affect people of any age.

New and constantly evolving treatments such as immunotherapy are likely to continue to improve outcomes for people affected by lung cancer.

-coughing up blood -hoarse voice -weight loss -loss of appetite -a new or changed cough that doesn’t go away -chest pain and/or shoulder pain or discomfort -trouble breathing or shortness of breath -chest infection that doesn’t go away -tiredness or weakness

Please note many conditions can cause the above symptoms, not just lung cancer

Anyone can get lung cancer, even if they have never smoked.

If you have any of these symptoms and they are persistent, talk to your doctor at Kambu Health.
