What is Lung Cancer?
Lung cancer is a type of cancer that affects the lungs. It is the most common form of cancer in the world, and it is also the most deadly.
Lung cancer is caused by the smoking of cigarettes, the use of marijuana, and other forms of tobacco use. It can also be caused by the exposure to certain chemicals and viruses.
Lung cancer is treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Most people who are diagnosed with lung cancer survive for at least five years after they are diagnosed. However, lung cancer is fatal in almost half of all cases.

Types of Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer in the world, and it is also the most deadly.
There are several types of lung cancer, and each one has different symptoms. Non- small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer, and it accounts for 80% of all cases. NSCLC is usually caused by smoking cigarettes, but it can also be caused by other forms of exposure to tobacco smoke.
The symptoms of NSCLC vary depending on which area of the lung it affects. Symptoms may include a cough that doesn’t go away, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or fatigue. If NSCLC is not treated, it can spread to other parts of the body and lead to death.
The second most common type of lung cancer is small cell lung cancer (SCLC). SCLC is usually more aggressive than NSCLC and tends to occur in people who have been exposed to asbestos or other toxic substances. SCLC rarely goes away on its own and often requires surgery or radiation therapy to treat it.
Lung cancer can also be caused by other types of cancer cells. Invasive lung cancers are usually caused by cancers that have spread
