London, UK -- The Royal Brompton Hospital has developed a ground-breaking lung cancer assessment clinic which is now accessible to the general public at the hospitalís Private Patients Centre in London. At a low cost, the clinical assessment can offer private assessments to patients who are concerned about their health following indicative symptoms. In some circumstances a low dose computed tomograph (CT) scan may be recommended. This service offers individuals world class clinical assessment, which would otherwise be out of reach at a relatively inexpensive cost.
Currently, survival rates for lung cancer are relatively low, primarily due to late diagnosis. It is widely accepted that much more positive survival rates exist in those patients who are subject to early diagnosis. Lung cancers detected at an earlier stage can often be treated with a much higher success rate than those identified in the later stages.
Currently lung cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in the United Kingdom, second only to breast cancer which affects women. Statistics have shown that although the link between tobacco and lung cancer was established many years ago, Lung Cancer rates continue to increase year on year. This has lead to a greater awareness of Lung Cancer, itís impacts on the quality of life of the sufferer and finally the symptoms which are indicative of the disease.
