Can lung cancer be prevented?
The important things to understand about lung cancer include causes, risks, and prevention. Risk factors may include age, smoking, exposure to radon or asbestos, cancer causing agents in the work place, carcinogens (cancer causing agents) coal products, nickel, diesel exhaust, contaminated drinking water, air pollution, talcum powder, or a personal family history of previous cancers or exposures. "For Lung Cancer Awareness Month, the American Cancer Society (ACS) is warning that anyone can get lung cancer including people who smoke, people who have quit, and people who have never smoked. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women, accounting for 1 in 4 cancer deaths in the United States. Reducing lung cancer deaths today can be achieved by curbing smoking, increasing screening for those at high risk, recognizing the symptoms of lung cancer, and promoting state-of-the-art diagnostic approaches and treatment for those diagnosed with the disease." pressroom.cancer.org/2020-10-29-Lung-Cancer-Can-Strike-Anyone
