Clearing the Air: Understanding the Causes and Prevention of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancer and is responsible for the highest number of cancer-related deaths worldwide. The primary cause of lung cancer is smoking, which accounts for nearly 85% of all cases. However, non-smokers can also develop lung cancer due to exposure to environmental factors like air pollution and radon gas. Prevention of lung cancer involves avoiding tobacco smoke and minimizing exposure to harmful substances. Early detection is crucial for better prognosis and improved survival rates. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the causes and prevention of lung cancer.
