ECLS Study

Early detection of Cancer of the Lung Scotland (ECLS)

Non-Test Group

  • Your blood sample will be stored and may be used for other cancer related medical research if you agree to this. All samples will be stored at the University of Nottingham, our research partners, according to regulatory guidelines.

  • If you agree, we might ask you to fill in a short survey at 1 and 3 months after your screening visit and 6 monthly for 1 year. The survey will take about 15 minutes to fill in, but not everybody will be asked to do this.

  • It is important that you see your GP if you feel unwell in any way that could be due to lung cancer. This includes persistent cough, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, weight loss or loss of appetite.

  • You should carry on having tests for other types of cancer if they are offered to you (e.g. bowel cancer test, mammograms, cervical smears).
