Researchers pilot new tests for the early detection of lung cancer, as ground-breaking trial gets underway in Yorkshire

The first participants are being invited to take part in a ground-breaking research trial that aims to save lives by improving the early diagnosis of lung cancer. Every year, 25,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with advanced, inoperable lung cancer, making it the biggest cause of cancer death in the UK, and costing the NHS £307m a year.
