Lung Cancer and the Importance of Early Detection

In Australia, lung cancer takes the grim title of being the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among both men and women.

It doesn’t discriminate, affecting individuals from all walks of life, but there are certain groups that bear a heavier burden.

The survival rates for individuals diagnosed with lung cancer are disheartening. In many cases, this devastating disease is not detected until it has reached an advanced stage, making successful treatment an uphill battle. It’s a stark reminder of the importance of identifying symptoms and risk factors as early as possible.

At South Coast Radiology, our practice accepts all referrals from GPs and medical specialists.
