Cancer: Treatment for ‘death star’ lung cancer could soon become available on the NHS

Date:


Health Secretary Sajid Javid added: “As a part of our national war on cancer, we’re committed to speeding up diagnosis times and providing innovative treatments.

“This includes revolutionary drugs like Sotorasib which will let hundred more lung cancer patients across England get the treatment they need”.

Although relatively common in the context of cancer, lung cancer can be difficult to treat as: “there are usually no signs or symptoms in the early stages” said the NHS.

However, once symptoms arise, they usually do so in the form a cough that doesn’t go away after a couple of weeks, chest infections, coughing up blood, a long-standing cough that gets worse, persistent breathlessness, and an ache or pain when breathing or coughing.
