Be Clear on Cancer Campaign encourages those with a persistent cough or breathlessness to go to their doctor.

Be Clear on Cancer is back with a respiratory symptoms campaign running across England.

The campaign highlights 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.
