Lung cancer is a type of cancer that starts in your lungs and can spread to other parts of the body. If caught early enough, it can be treated with surgery or other methods. You can protect yourself from lung cancer by not smoking or being exposed to secondhand smoke.
Lung cancers are caused by a variety of factors including tobacco use, exposure to radon gas and certain chemicals, family history of lung cancer, long term exposure to asbestos fibres and certain viruses such as the human papillomavirus (HPV). Tobacco use has been shown to account for up to 90% of all cases of lung cancer. Other risk factors include age (most people who get lung cancer are over 55), diet, occupation and environmental factors.
