At Royal Brompton Hospital we are world renowned for our research success and breakthroughs in the specialist treatment of lung and heart disease.
As another ‘first’, Royal Brompton has launched a groundbreaking new service in our Private Outpatients Clinic for lung cancer risk assessment.
People with a smoking history or strong family history of lung cancer (particularly those over 50 years old) may be at increased risk of developing lung cancer. The earlier the disease is detected the greater the chances of successful treatment, however most lung cancers are diagnosed at a late stage and survival rates for these patients are much less favourable.
At Royal Brompton Hospital we will assess your risk factors for developing lung cancer, and only if necessary, recommend a low-dose computed tomography (CT scan) to detect signs of early lung cancer.
