Flying with lung cancer

If you are travelling on a plane with lung cancer, you must take a few things into consideration. It is important to speak to your GP and see if you will need extra oxygen on the plane because once a plane is in flight, the pressure in the cabins is lower than at ground lower. You can always check with the airline to see what their policies are for providing people with additional oxygen facilities.

You may also have a higher risk of developing blood clots of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) on a plane, so take into consideration the length of your flight. See your doctor before you travel and ask what your risks are and what you can do about it. This may include exercises in your seat, wearing compression stockings, or taking extra water or medication.
