The majority of patients who come to their doctor with lung symptoms (for example cough) or bowel symptoms (for example loose stool) do not have anything seriously wrong. However, a very few people are at risk of cancer. We would like to help doctors diagnose cancer quickly so that potential high risk patients are detected sooner and unnecessary examinations are minimised for those patients that are low risk. This research is about finding what symptoms and examinations are best for predicting lung and bowel cancer.
This study has now closed to recruitment.
