Nakuul Mehta, Star TV Actor supports Public Health England’s (PHE) national ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ awareness campaign which prompts people with symptoms of some of the leading causes of death in England to see their doctor.
Lung cancer, heart disease and lung disease cause more than 150,000 deaths in England each year. Early diagnosis can save lives and improve the quality of life of those living with conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a common form of lung disease that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
Nakuul Mehta, STAR TV Actor, comments: “Knowing the signs of these diseases is important for our community. If you get out of breath doing everyday tasks you used to be able to do or you’ve had a persistent cough for 3 weeks or more, it could be a sign of lung disease, heart disease, or even cancer. Finding it early makes it more treatable and could save your life. So don’t ignore it, I urge you to please tell your doctor.”
The campaign is prompting anyone with these symptoms to see their GP and also calls on people to look out for each other and encourage friends and family to act.
