About lung cancer

Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. It’s one of the most common types of cancer in the United States. Although smoking significantly increases a person’s risk of developing the disease, people who have never smoked may develop lung cancer, too.

The American Cancer Society estimates 228,150 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in 2019.
