New campaign launches to encourage those with a persistent cough or breathlessness to go to their doctor
A new Be Clear on Cancer campaign has launched across England to highlight that a cough for three weeks or more could be a sign of lung disease, including cancer and that if you get out of breath doing everyday things that you used to be able to do, like mowing the lawn, it could be sign of lung or heart disease, or even cancer.
While it may well be nothing serious, the campaign makes it clear that if you have either of these symptoms you should go to your doctor. Finding these conditions early makes them more treatable.
The campaign also encourages carers, family and friends to talk to people they care for and urge them to see their doctor if they have these symptoms.
The campaign see adverts running on TV and radio, in magazines and online.
