At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Many of the symptoms of lung cancer are similar to those shown by other, less serious diseases.

If you are at all concerned that you may have lung cancer or any other respiratory disease you should visit your doctor immediately. This will allow you to put your mind at rest - or start treatment as quickly as possible.

There are two main types of lung cancer:

  • Non small cell lung cancer – most lung cancers fall into this category. While there are three types of non small cell lung cancer, they tend to be treated in the same way. The types are:
    • Squamous cell carcinoma
    • Adenocarcinoma
    • Large cell carcinoma
  • Small cell lung cancer – this is less common, and tends to spread faster than non-small-cell lung cancer. It is usually associated with smoking.

The general symptoms of lung cancer include:

  • A persistent cough
  • Breathlessness
  • Pain when you breath  or cough
  • Blood in the phlegm
  • Tiredness
  • Weight loss
  • Lack of appetite
  • Clubbed fingers

As the disease becomes more advanced you may also notice that your voice becomes hoarse or you have difficulty in swallowing. There may be swelling in other parts of your body, such as your face or neck, and you may experience pain or an ache under your ribs, in your chest or in your shoulder.
