Adapted from the British Lung Fopundation Facebook page:

Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK, affecting thousands of people each year.

Lung cancer can affect anyone. Having symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have lung cancer – they’re common and have many different causes. And if you live with a long-term lung condition, you might already have some of them.

Although a lot of the way care is delivered has changed because of COVID-19, the NHS is there for you if you need it. It’s important to tell your doctor if your usual symptoms change or become worse.
