Diagnosing lung cancer

Men and women discussing lung cancer

This section tells you about the tests used in the detection and diagnosis of lung cancer. After diagnosis, you have more tests to work out which treatment is best.

If you have cancer that has spread to your lungs from somewhere else, some of this information may not be right for you. We have information on secondary lung cancer that will be more suitable.
