Be Clear on Cancer – breathlessness

Breathlessness could be a sign of lung or heart disease, or even cancer.

Advice on respiratory symptoms

Advice on respiratory symptoms

The latest Be Clear on Cancer campaign is now running, aiming to raise awareness that if you are experiencing breathlessness doing things you used to be able to do, you should go to your doctor.

While it may well be nothing serious, people who get out of breath doing simple everyday activities, such as getting dressed, are encouraged to go to their GP as early diagnosis and treatment can improve the quality of life of those living with long-term conditions.

Many people in England suffer from breathlessness, but may not have seen their doctor. Instead, they might have developed coping mechanisms, such as taking short breaks, giving up hobbies or not leaving the house as often.
