Lung Cancer Cells

Lung Cancer Cells is a common form of cancer. American Cancer Society estimates that more than 172,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer and more than 163,000 people die from lung cancers each year.

What Cause Lung Cancer?

  • The smokers have the highest risk of developing lung cancer. Your risk depends on both how many cigarettes you’ve smoked and how long you’ve been a smoker. 
  • Pollution : The air we breathe contains particles that may be hazardous. Research noted by the ALA suggests that particle pollution may boost the risk of developing lung cancer,
  • Certain chemicals. Being exposed to hazardous chemicals may (Chromium, nickel, asbestos, arsenic, uranium, asbestos, petroleum) significantly increase your risk of lung cancer.
  • Radon gas as the number-two cause of lung cancer, just behind smoking. Radon is a radioactive gas that’s found in dirt.

Lung cancers can be divided into two main types: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. The cancer cells of each type grow and spread in different ways, and they are treated differently.
