Lung cancer kills more men and women in the United States than any other type of cancer. The American Cancer Society says nearly160,000 people die from lung cancer every year. Unfortunately, Kentucky is at the top of the list when it comes to lung cancer deaths, with 74.8 deaths per 100,000. Specialists at Norton Cancer Institute have a new tool in the fight against lung cancer.
Lung cancer often causes no symptoms early on, meaning the cancer has time to grow before it is detected. Cigarette smoking is one of the main factors behind lung cancer, so if you smoke, stop. If you’ve never smoked, don’t start. For more information, call (502) 629-HOPE .
