Background Information
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 can take a lot of time to become noticeable. The sign or symptoms may occur in the chest as a tough cough, sourness in the chest and back, change in the voice, and sounds with each breath. On the other hand, it may occur in somewhere else in the body such as headaches, weakness, muscle wasting, and unjustified weight loss. Unfortunately, there may be no obvious reasons for lung cancer, but in most cases, the lung cancer happens because of smoking seeing that smoking may damage the cells that defend the lungs. Also, smoking may limit the life of people by 11-12 years. Not just that, smoking may affect skin, mouth, bones, brain, and other body parts. So, quitting smoking can lower the health risk, and also reduce the risk of lung cancer by 50% after 10 years. But, you can avoid lung cancer by avoiding smoking, eating healthy food, and exercising 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.

Smoking, air pollution, a family history, and radon gas May affect the lung cancer.
