Lung cancer

Lung Cancer

  • Lung cancer interferes with this vital process of inhaling and exhaling, which can make breathing very difficult.
  • Lung Cancer is caused by lung cells growing out of control. As the number of cells grow, they form into a tumor. There are many types of lung cancers.
  • Early symptoms of lung cancer may be a slight cough or shortness of breath, depending on which part of the lung is affected. As the cancer develops, these symptoms may become more severe or intense.
  • Some of the common symptoms include cough, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, tiresomeness, wheezing, change in speech, weight loss, loss of appetite and pneumonia or bronchitis that keeps coming back.
  • Smoking cigarettes is the leading cause of lung cancer. However, lung cancer in non-smokers has been rising in recent years. Other causes for lung cancer include radon, radiation, asbestos, and pollution.
