8 Symptoms Of Lung Cancer And Ways To Reduce The Risk Of The Disease
February 15, 2018
Lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer affecting all people and the most common type of cancer affecting men. The disease accounts for about 13 percent of all new cancer cases in the United States and is the biggest killer among all types of cancer (one of the other deadliest types of cancer is pancreatic cancer). Needless to say, one of the most common causes and risk factors for developing the disease is smoking. About 9 in 10 of all lung cancer cases are caused by smoking. Other factors, including family history of the disease and workplace exposure to cancer-causing substances, also increase the risk of lung cancer.
