Lung Cancer top cancer killer

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2015

There’s a reason November is “Lung Cancer Awareness Month”. The American Lung Association says lung cancer is the top cancer killer in men and women – killing almost twice as many women as any other cancer. Currently, only 17 percent of lung cancer cases among women are diagnosed early, according to Kristen Young of the Lung Association. This could change, she says as millions of Americans at high risk for lung cancer now have access to potentially lifesaving screenings.

The screening can detect lung cancer before there are symptoms, when it is easier to treat. The Lung Association says diagnoses have nearly doubled among all women in the past 37 years, yet only 1 percent of women cite lung cancer as a top-of-mind cancer concern.
