Prevention and Screening

  • Lung Cancer: Risk Factors

    Tobacco smoke and secondhand smoke are both risk factors for lung cancer. So is exposure to radon and asbestos.

  • Lung Cancer: Early Detection

    Screening is the process of looking for cancer in people who don’t have symptoms. Your doctor may recommend screening if you have an increased risk for lung cancer. Screening can sometimes find cancer early, when it is likely to be easier to treat.
