dc.description.abstractIn terms of morbidity and mortality, cancer remains a significant health problem in the United Kingdom, which has led to significant interest in both patients and professionals recognising cancer symptoms. Some studies have argued that socio-demographic inequalities may be partly responsible for differences in when cancer is diagnosed and survival. This suggests the need for improved awareness of cancer symptoms to facilitate early diagnosis and better survival, especially in marginalised and disadvantaged groups. Although there is evidence of an association between socio-economic status (SES) and the awareness of general cancer symptoms by patients, no studies have examined differences in the awareness of respiratory or head and neck cancer symptoms among people who have not yet been diagnosed with canceren
