Cancer is an issue that is dealt with all across the world. It is one of the biggest diseases that kill millions of people each year around the globe. Every now and then, there is a campaign to raise awareness among people regarding the cancer. A nationwide Government campaign in Rochdale is on the same road to educate people that a cough for three weeks or more could be a sign of lung cancer. This lung cancer campaign called `Be Clear on Cancer' will tour shopping centers and various other parts.
According to Care Services Minister Paul Burstow, "Lung cancer is the biggest cancer killer in this country but worryingly many people don't know the signs and symptoms that could save their lives. The earlier lung cancer is diagnosed, the better the chances of survival". In order to ensure that people are aware of the symptoms and they visit their nearest GP to check, these types of campaigns are necessary. This will help save a lot of lives.
He has also urged the general population to be a part of this roadshow by going along to one of them in the North West where nurses will be on hand to answer any questions about lung cancer.
