Lung Cancer & The Facts
Lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer. In Scotland 5000 people die from lung cancer every year. This is because most cases are picked up at a later stage when the chance of cure is low. This is often because there are few symptoms until the cancer has been growing for a long time.
A new blood test called EarlyCDT-Lung might be able to pick up very small lung cancers before they cause health problems. We want to find out if earlier detection may help save lives in the long term by following everyone who takes part for up to 10 years. By taking part you can help us to find this out.
