A FREE cancer support service will be in Gosport next week as part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

The Macmillan mobile service will be in Lawrence Square on Tuesday, November 18, to provide free, confidential advice and support to anybody with a concern or question relating to any aspect of cancer.

The charity said that lung cancer is the biggest killer of all forms of cancers, with 35,000 people dying every year, but this service aims to inform people on the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Last year, 60,000 people benefited from the on-the-spot help and advice provided by the service.

People are being urged to visit their GP if they suspect they have any of the symptoms or if they are concerned about a relative or friend.
