Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the abnormal growth of cells that begin in the lungs. It is one of the most common and serious types of cancer. There are two types; cancer that begins in the lungs is called primary lung cancer. Cancer that spreads to the lungs from another place in the body is known as secondary lung cancer.

Smoking causes the majority of lung cancers — both in smokers and in people exposed to secondhand smoke.
