Lung Cancer Symptoms
Lung cancer is the leader in cancer deaths among both men and women in the United States. There are two main types of lung cancers: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Non-small cell lung cancer, the more common of the two, spreads more slowly to other areas of the body than small cell cancer.
Perhaps the most tragic fact regarding lung cancer is that it is quite possibly the most preventative of all the various types of cancers. An alarming 87% of all lung cancers are related to smoking. In a single cigarette, a smoker inhales over 4000 chemicals, many of which contain carcinogens. Sadly, even though this knowledge is wide-spread, many people choose to ignore the potential risks, and many are diagnosed with lung cancer. As with several other cancers, lung cancer symptoms are usually not apparent until it is in the advanced stage. Nonetheless, certain warning signs may manifest themselves, at which time a person should consult a doctor as soon as possible.
