The new respiratory symptoms awareness campaign will focus on the symptoms of a persistent cough and inappropriate breathlessness. It is targeting those aged 50 and over. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in England and Wales. It can affect people of all ages but is most common in those who are over 50. Although it is more common in smokers, around one in eight people with lung cancer has never smoked. Finding it early improves the chances of successful treatment, so if someone has had a cough for three weeks or more, it's worth visiting their doctor to be on the safe side.
