Learning More About Lung Cancer

More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Though lung cancer is common, many people don't know much about it or are afraid to learn. Whether you have been diagnosed, know someone who has been diagnosed or are just curious about more information, it is important to understand this disease so we can fight against it. The more you know about lung cancer, the more control you have over your life.

There are many resources available to people living with lung cancer. The American Lung Association has provided information and tools created especially for you to use. Please explore the offerings here and in our area focused on patients and caregivers at Lung.org/facinglungcancer.

Early detection of lung cancer can increase survival rates. Call the Lung Helpline at 1-800-LUNGUSA or talk to your doctor about lung cancer screening.
