"A lung cancer diagnosis can leave you feeling overwhelmed and full of questions. Here's our guide to help you prepare for your first medical oncology appointment. And, hopefully, ease your mind about what you can expect.
Causes of Lung Cancer
Although smoking is the main cause of lung cancer, lung cancer risk is also increased by:
exposure to secondhand smoke
environmental exposures, such as radon
workplace toxins (e.g., asbestos, arsenic)
air pollution
Lung cancer can happen to anyone; however, smokers are about 25 times more likely to develop lung cancer than nonsmokers. At least 20% of patients diagnosed with lung cancer never smoked at all!
Whether you"re young or old, a smoker or nonsmoker, it"s important to be on the lookout for lung cancer symptoms."
