Young women warned of lung cancer risks
Date:4/2/2009

e must encourage people who have symptoms of the disease to go to their own doctor as early as possible and have these investigated.

"In many cases it will not be cancer but if it is cancer and it is detected early, treatments are more likely to lead to a cure and improved survival."

Both the NICR and Macmillan reports have outlined the need for effective communication between hospitals, GPs, patients and carers to enhance the quality of life and survival rates of patients.

The Macmillan Cancer Support study, Patients' and carers' experiences of living with lung cancer in Northern Ireland - a report, found that there are high levels of unmet need.

The report highlights the need for better information and support services for patients and carers and says that it is essential that they are better understood and given a higher priority by those involved in developing health services

Macmillan has also stressed the importance, in the light of evidence of improved survival rates, to think about the longer term needs of patients and their carers.

Heather Monteverde, Macmillan Cancer Support's General Manager for Northern Ireland, said:

"It is encouraging that more people are surviving lung cancer longer however that means there is more need than ever to provide long term support for patients, their families and carers.

"Lung cancer is a devastating disease and, as a high priority for Macmillan, we are campaigning hard to ensure that patients have equal access to services, no matter where they live in Northern Ireland.

"We are well aware of the link between deprivation and lung cancer and we need to ensure that patients do not experience increased poverty at what is already a hugely stressful time."
