Stevenson Supports November's Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has shown his support to Lung Cancer Awareness month which takes place throughout November.

Commenting on the campaign, Mr Stevenson said:

“Lung cancer claims the lives of more than 34,000 people in the UK every year - more than leukaemia, breast and prostate cancer combined – and yet lung cancer still falls far behind other major cancers in awareness.

“Lung Cancer is often associated with smokers, but it must be stressed that non smokers are at risk at contracting the disease.

“Symptoms such as a continuing cough, breathlessness, having difficulty swallowing, or experiencing a dull ache or sharp pain when you cough or take a deep breath should be discussed with a GP.

“Please visit: www.lunguk.org for additional information.”
