Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer at Rivers Hospital

Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK. In the early stages, there are often no signs. As lung cancer grows symptoms develop such as a persistent cough, breathlessness and unexplained weight loss and these should be checked out.

Most cases of lung cancer are caused by smoking, although people who have never smoked can also develop it.

Ramsay Health Care UK offers you rapid and convenient appointments to expert lung cancer specialists and a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests to investigate if you have lung cancer with a fast turnaround for results to put your mind at rest or arrange your treatment as soon as possible.

Being diagnosed with lung cancer can be distressing for you and your family. We provide on-site and virtual support by an expert multi-disciplinary team of specialists.

Patient safety is our primary concern throughout your visits to our hospitals and you can rest-assured that we are delivering the best care whilst adhering to strict protocols to prevent the risk of infection.
