Everything you need to know about lung cancer
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month
Lung cancer is one of the most common, most dangerous, and most frequently talked about forms of cancer in the world. Of all the causes of lung cancer, many of them are products of our modern world, such as the widespread use of asbestos and the mass production of tobacco products. Seeing as there has never been a known cure for lung cancer, that means annual diagnoses and deaths were only rising for decades. Thankfully, that trend has finally changed, and as more people become aware of the common causes of lung cancer, the number of new cases each year has been on the decline since 2008. That being said, it's still the most common form of cancer in many places on earth, and there is still a lot of work to do.
