Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Lung cancer account for about 27% of all cancer deaths and is the leading cause of cancer death among men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. Everyone, including non-smokers, runs the risk of contracting lung cancer, yet the risk is significantly higher for people who smoke regularly. Genetics can also directly cause lung cancer. Learn more about lung cancer by visiting your primary care physician or visiting https://www.iaslc.org/lcam.
