RTÉ One, Wednesday, 8.00pm
Health of the Nation

Programme 5: Cancer

For the fifth programme in the series the mobile clinic moves to the Parkway Shopping Centre in Limerick. As well as providing advice about a variety of medical problems this programme will also focus on cancer. We set up a skin-scanning clinic to allow people to check the damage they may have already done to their skin. The doctors also meet a chronic smoker whose habit is severely affecting his health, a woman who visited the clinic with painful swollen legs and a man who survived cancer.
