On the 18th May 2017 this years 'Be clear on Cancer- Respiratory Awareness' campaign will launch.

The key campaign messages will be:

  • If you’ve had a cough for 3 weeks or more, tell your doctor
  • If you get out of breath doing things you used to be able to do, tell your doctor
  • Getting out of breath could be a sign of heart or lung disease, including cancer. Finding it early makes it more treatable, so don’t ignore it, tell your doctor
  • A persistent cough could be a sign of lung disease, including cancer. Finding it early makes it more treatable, so don’t ignore it, tell your doctor.
  • Chances are it’s nothing serious but if it is cancer finding it early makes it more treatable
  • Don’t put getting out of breath down to something else e.g. getting older, being overweight or smoking
