Lung cancer is known to be one of the most common and deadliest forms of cancer. One in 16 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime, according to the National Cancer Institute – that equals one diagnosis every 2.2 minutes. And unfortunately, lung cancer continues to claim more lives every year than any other form of cancer by far.
Fortunately, there are steps we can all take to reduce our lung cancer risk and – if we do develop it – to increase our chances of survival. Early detection is key.
