Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the lung. It causes the most cancer deaths in the United States, but the chance of survival improves if diagnosed early. Lung cancer screenings are an important way to save lives and offer the potential for recovery.

The best way to counter lung cancer is to prevent it, and the most likely way to do that is to avoid smoking or simply quit if you are a smoker. The next best thing is to catch lung cancer early, which gives the greatest possibility of being cured through radiation, chemotherapy, surgery or some combination.
