Lung cancer: 'People need to get help early'

24 June 2014 Last updated at 11:15 BST

Lung cancer campaigners have called on health officials to warn people about the symptoms of the biggest cancer killer in Wales.

It accounts for more than a fifth of cancer deaths, more than bowel and breast cancer combined, according to a recent report from Public Health Wales.

The UK Lung Cancer Coalition said Wales also had one of the lowest survival rates in Europe for the disease.

The Welsh government accepted it had to go further in tackling lung cancer.

Dr Ian Lewis, director of research and policy at the charity Tenovus, told BBC Radio Wales' Felicity Evans it was vital to catch lung cancer early.
