Lung Cancer

Understanding Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a dangerous growth that starts in the lungs. People usually get it from smoking, but it can also be caused by pollution or genetics. Some signs are a cough that won’t go away, chest pain, and shortness of breath. Different types and stages of cancer can be treated in different ways, but some examples are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment. The outlook is better if the disease is found early through screening. Quitting smoking and staying away from people who smoke can lower the risk by a lot.
