Lung Cancer Information

According to recent statistics, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. What's more, it has a very low survival rate -- only 15 percent. Tobacco use is the most well-known cause, but exposure to asbestos or radon, among other things, can also lead to its development.
 
Lung cancer is broken down into two different types, based on how the cells look under a microscope. Common symptoms of this condition include shortness of breath, coughing up blood, and a persistent cough. A person's treatment options typically include a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and sometimes surgery.
