Car park tests for cancer to boost early detection

  Car park tests for cancer to boost early detection Potential cancer patients could be offered screening in shopping centre car parks after a pilot scheme successfully detected the disease in one in 33 people. The NHS will invite people susceptible to lung cancer across four areas of England to mobile screening units in an effort to catch the illness early.A scheme in Manchester invited 2,500 people aged 55 to 74 with a history of smoking for CT scans in car parks, community hubs and shopping centres.One in 33 showed signs of cancer, but four out of five of the cases were caught early - at stage one or two.

In the first (and largest) study of its kind, a team of scientists have confirmed what they long suspected to be true - but had no evidence for - that your early years’ health does have a bearing on the rest of your life. In fact, it could go so far as to lower the risk of developing lung disease.

Thierry Troosters, president-elect of the European Respiratory Society, said: “It seems that regular sports in childhood and adolescence, ensuring development of peak exercise capacity, may be your lung-insurance for later.”

'Life-Saving' Cancer Scanners Could Be Coming To A Supermarket Car Park Near You

  'Life-Saving' Cancer Scanners Could Be Coming To A Supermarket Car Park Near You Cancerhealth scanners are set to appear in supermarket car parks across the UK, in a bid to boost diagnosis rates and save lives.NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens will today announce the scaling up of an innovative scheme that catches lung cancer early by scanning patients.The scheme, offering smokers and ex-smokers free health checks and on-the-spot scans, has been piloted in Manchester with incredible results. Michael Brady, 64, went for a 20-minute lung check as part of the pilot and, within a week, was told he had cancer at an early stage.“I’m really grateful I went for this lung check,” he said. “It’s saved my life.”The pilot programme scanned more than 2,500 people in three deprived areas of Manchester (where lung cancer is more prevalent) and discovered 46 cases of cancer. Of these, 80% were early stage one and two diagnoses.The scanners picked up one cancer for every 33 patients scanned over the course of a year and quadrupled the early diagnosis rates for lung cancer in Manchester.Speaking at the Economist War on Cancer event in London today, Simon Stevens will highlight the success of the Manchester scanners and will announce that the NHS is to fund scanners in other areas of the UK as part of a national programme to diagnose cancer earlier and improve cancer care.

50-country comparison of child and youth fitness levels .

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) affects an estimated 1.2 million people in the UK, around 2% of the population, making it the second most common lung disease nationwide after asthma.

And with prevalence increasing 27% in the last decade, and an ageing population that will make the problem worse, researchers are keen to pinpoint how preventative measures can start as early as possible and help reduce the burden of lung disease in the future.

Looking at 2,406 children from New Zealand and Denmark, the two groups were asked to take part in aerobic fitness tests. In Denmark, they were tested at age nine, 15, 21 and 29 using an exercise bike to see how much they could do before they were exhausted.

And in New Zealand the study asked people at 15, 26, 32, and 28 to do the same test.

What the experts want you to know about lung cancer

  What the experts want you to know about lung cancer Lung cancer is often associated with smokers, but it doesn't discriminateBecause of the stigma surrounding lung cancer there are a lot of misconceptions about the condition. This Lung Cancer Awareness Month Dr Tom Newsom-Davis, Consultant Medical Oncologist, and Mr Eric Lim, Consultant Thoracic Surgeon, both from HCA Healthcare UK, set the record straight about the disease.

The results showed that fitter children had better lung function and the more their fitness improved during childhood, the greater their lung capacity when they reached adulthood.

This linked remained even when considering height, weight, asthma and smoking. The results also showed a stronger effect in boys than girls.

Professor Bob Hancox, respiratory specialist at the University of Otago, New Zealand, said: “We don’t know why fitness and lung function are linked but one explanation could be that fitter people have better respiratory muscle strength as well as other muscle strength.”

And he adds that looking into this further is difficult because “following children over many years is expensive and time consuming”.

“In the meantime, this provides another reason to make sure our children get fit and stay fit. Exercise and fitness are good for our bodies and this appears to be true for our lungs as well as other aspects of health.”

A lung expert reveals how social smoking actually affects your body

  A lung expert reveals how social smoking actually affects your body Think having the odd cigarette with a glass of wine is no big deal? Think againThe truth is, there's no real definition. But what is clear is that the idea of 'social smoking' - having the occasional cigarette when you're out with a certain group of people, or when you're having a drink - is often used by people as a way of justifying their occasional habit.

How can I help my child get fitter?

Samantha Young from Kids Run Free told HuffPost UK: “It is easy to blame your lack of ability to go outside on the British weather, but there are no bad weather days just inappropriate clothing.”

“Children do as you do,” explained Young. “If you sit and watch TV whilst telling your children to get off their bottoms and move, you are giving a mixed message.

“Educate your children about how important it is to move and feel their hearts beating.”

The NHS recommends parents find time every weekend to do something active with their children.

You could play frisbee or football in the park, go trampolining, try indoor rock climbing, roller skating, rollerblading or skateboarding. In winter, go ice skating.
