Do you know that 439.2 individual of 100,000 men and women affected by cancer each year? (National Cancer Institute, 2018)
In this research, I will discuss the lung cancer in general and how it develops in the lung and then I will mention its causes. After that, I will talk about how smoking has a very strong impact on the lung that may help to develop lung cancer. Finally, I will end with some ways to prevent developing lung cancer.
Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the lungs, it is called lung cancer (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). The sign of lung cancer might take years to become notable and it may occur in the chest as coughing, soreness in the chest and back, change in the voice, and sounds with each breath. Or occur in somewhere else in the body such as headaches, weakness, muscle wasting, and unjustified weight loss. Unfortunately, there may be no clear causes of lung cancer, but in most cases, lung cancer occurs because of smoking seeing that smoking may harm the cells that protect the lungs. Also, smoking may shorten the life of people by 11-12 years. Not just that, smoking may affect skin, mouth, bones, brain, and much more of the body parts. So, quitting smoking can lower health risk, and also lower the risk of lung cancer by 50% after 10 years. But, you can avoid lung cancer by avoiding smoking, eat healthy food, and exercise for 4 or more days a week. If you, unfortunately, have lung cancer, you can treat that based on your stage, health, and preferences by surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, radiosurgery, or alternative medicines.
Continuing in doing some habits may lead you to lung cancer. A habit like smoking or sitting with smokers will definitely damage the immune cells and causes a health risk. Also, some studies found a strong relation between expositing to air pollution like inhalation of chemical compounds and lung cancer. But also, family history, which something you cannot control, can increase the risk for lung cancer.
