Lung Cancer – Smokers Beware of this Leading Fatal Cancer

Lung Cancer – Smokers Beware of this Leading Fatal Cancer

Lung cancer is the type of cancer that leads to the highest mortality rate in men and the third highest in women. Everyone who puts a cigarette in their mouth or has prolonged exposure to second-hand smoke is at significantly higher risk for developing lung cancer – and the risk rises in proportion with the amount of time spent smoking and the number of cigarettes smoked. Quitting smoking is the best way to lower your chance of developing lung cancer.

Medical imaging, such as X-rays and new low-dose radiation CT scans, can be used to diagnose lung cancer, along with laboratory tests and biopsies. Surgery to remove the cancerous tissue is typically the most effective frontlinct treatment for lung cancer. Other treatment options include chemotherapy and radiation therapy, both of which are often used in combination with surgery. This infographic will simplify the understanding of lung cancer from the possible ways of getting it to the treatment options.
