Lung cancer causes more deaths each year than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. That is heartbreaking for me hear, because I know that less is known about lung cancer than the others I’ve mentioned. Lung Cancer Awareness Month is November, but any month is a good one to familiarize yourself with the warning signs of lung cancer and show support for its patients.
Lung Cancer Awareness Month began as Lung Cancer Awareness Day in 1995, but has since grown into a month-long program during November that features extensive social media campaigns and public activities to raise awareness and create a more positive dialog about lung cancer.
Did you know that lung cancer can affect you, even if you’ve never smoked? When I learned that a few years ago, I was stunned.
More than 430,000 people alive today have been diagnosed with lung cancer at some point. Each case of lung cancer is different–there are sub-types of lung cancer that are treated differently. It is important for those diagnosed with lung cancer to be tested for specific biomarkers in order to understand what type of cancer they have, and to talk to a doctor to determine the best course of action for them.
