The survival rate for people with cancer could be improved if diagnoses were sped up, global health insurance policyholders may be interested to hear.
This is the view of Andrew Wilson-Webb, chief executive of the Rarer Cancers Forum, who noted that improvements can be made at the first step of the medical treatment process.
"Access to new medicines is one [way it could improve], the other is earlier diagnosis. Earlier diagnosis is really the key to pretty much everything," he explained.
"Early diagnosis will save lives right the way across the board. It needs more GP awareness, and GP education."
His comments come after the National Cancer Intelligence Network's research revealed just half as many lung cancer patients in England are receiving potentially lifesaving surgery compared to the best countries in the world.
Some 14 per cent of people aged 50-59 have surgery to combat the disease compared to nine per cent of those in the 70-79 age bracket.
