Lung cancer kills more Americans than any other form of cancer. While anyone can get lung cancer, there are risk factors that increase your chances of developing it. Smoking is the leading risk factor causing about 90% of lung cancer cases. Other risk factors include exposure to radon, asbestos, arsenic, particle pollution (like those found in exhaust), and family history of lung cancer. Talk to your doctor about your risk level to see if you should be screened for lung cancer.
