This pilot project is part of our Detect Cancer Early programme, which aims to increase the early detection of cancer by 25 per cent. By testing those at greatest risk of developing lung cancer, and diagnosing it at its earliest possible stage, we stand a better chance of being able to treat the cancer successfully. This means patients can be treated when their general health is better and when less aggressive treatment maybe required than if the cancer had spread.
