World lung cancer day

Updated: Jan 10, 2023

#Lungcancer is still one of the most common cancers worldwide, with more diagnoses annually than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. It is estimated that lung cancer accounts for nearly one in five cancer deaths worldwide. (August 1st)

It is a #preventable disease. Factors that play a role in the development of #cancer include tobacco products, industrial products (uranium, radiation, asbestos), air pollution and #nutritional deficiencies. Recent studies have shown that the critical factor that increases the risk of #lung_cancer is long-term breathing of #carcinogens.

#smoking is responsible for the development of #lung cancer by 94% while the risk of lung cancer is 24-36 times higher in #smokers than in non-smokers.

Since it is a day of #awareness and #optimism, we must not forget that the introduction of new #drugs and #immunotherapy increased the survival of #patients and significantly improved their #quality_of_life, which is a revolution in the field of lung cancer.
