The National Cancer Control Programme and partners want to work with Dublin North Inner City community organisations who reach people who are at risk of developing lung cancer.
***WORKSHOP: Improving Early Detection of Lung Cancer in Dublin on Friday, 13th of March 2020 in the Chamber Room, Ballymun Civic Centre**
The National Lung Cancer Awareness Survey found only 12% of those living in Finglas, Cabra and Ballymun would go their doctor as soon as they noticed a possible symptom of lung cancer compared to 47% nationally.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Ireland. For those who do develop lung cancer, early detection is vital to improve survival.
People who often present with late stage include:
Male & female Aged > 50 years
Elderly living alone
You are invited to attend a meeting explore how to work together to improve early detection of lung cancer in your area.
