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. This web banner encourages people to tell their doctor straight away if they have had a cough for three weeks or more.
