Lung cancer is the fourth most commonly diagnosed invasive cancer in Australia and the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women.  Symptoms of lung cancer can often be non-specific thereby hindering early diagnosis and treatment.  Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for GPs was developed to assist GPs to manage people who have or may have lung cancer and support the early and rapid referral into the cancer care pathway. The report, Evidence relevant to the guide for the investigation of symptoms of lung cancer. provides the evidence supporting the development of the guide.
