Were you looking for information on Lung Cancer? Lung canser is a common misspelling of lung cancer.
Lung cancer is characterized by abnormal cell growth in the tissues of the lungs. The most common causes are associated with tobacco use; the disease is also associated with exposure to pollution and radar, among other things. There are two general types of this cancer: non-small cell and small cell. Symptoms of either type include a persistent cough, shortness of breath, and coughing up blood.
Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. In many cases, people will receive more than one type of treatment for their cancer. The type of treatment that is chosen will depend on the type of cancer and how far it has spread.
