Professor Sam Janes, Clinical Advisor for Lung Cancer

More men and more women die of lung cancer than any other cancer. Survival rates are currently low because it is detected late. The key for the future is to improve testing to allow early diagnosis of lung cancer and other cancers when they can be cured.

Frequently Asked Questions

Age restrictions

Check4Cancer’s cancer screening services are clinically governed by age restrictions, and you cannot sign up for a service if you are not within the age range for a particular cancer screening test.  This is because clinical research does not support the benefits of screening people outside our specified age ranges.

Regardless of age, if you have symptoms then you should always seek medical advice from your GP.

For common signs and symptoms of lung cancer,  please visit the Check4Cancer ‘Advice and Awareness’ page at this link.

Why should I use LungCheck?

If you are a past or current heavy smoker, with or without a close family history of lung cancer (parent, sibling, child), then LungCheck provides you with early detection screening before symptoms arise.  80% of all lung cancers are directly or indirectly connected with smoking. There is currently no NHS screening programme for lung cancer in the UK, however, there are clinical trials evaluating low dose CT scans. 

In the Scottish Lung Cancer Trial, for people with a strong smoking history +/- close family history of lung cancer, 41% of those who received the EarlyCDT-Lung blood test were diagnosed with early stage lung cancer . The survival of people with early stage lung cancer is much better than those diagnosed at a later stage.

Disclaimer

Whilst undergoing lung cancer screening will not prevent lung cancer, it can help to detect cancers at an early stage. Like all screening tests there may be some false positives and false negatives.

No lung cancer screening test can be guaranteed to be 100% accurate, and an abnormal result from LungCheck will mean that further investigations are likely to be recommended.
