Understanding lung cancer causes and risk factors
Though anyone can get lung cancer, people who smoke are at a much higher risk of developing it. Your risk increases the longer and more you smoke.
Other risk factors include family history of lung cancer and exposure to secondhand smoke, radon gas, asbestos and other harmful chemicals and materials.
Are you at a high risk of lung cancer? Have you noticed symptoms? A screening can help catch lung cancer early, which generally leads to a more effective treatment and outcome. This screening is free if you meet certain criteria. To lower your risk, kick your smoking habit with the help of Goshen Health’s cessation program.
