Learn About Lung Cancer

Learn about the symptoms of lung cancer, types of lung cancer, lung cancer screening eligibility and how to reduce your risk of lung cancer.

Your Risk

Smoking is the greatest risk factor, but there are others like radon and air pollution. Learn more.

Lung Cancer Symptoms

Lung cancer can go undiagnosed for a long time because symptoms—such as a nagging cough—can be chalked up to other health issues. If your symptoms persist, ask your doctor about lung cancer. Learn more.

Screening for Lung Cancer

Screening is available for those who are at high risk. If you are over 55 and have a smoking history, you may be eligible for lung cancer screening.

Types of Lung Cancer

No two lung cancers are the same. There are different types and subtypes of lung cancer. Knowing this and whether or not a tumor has any biomarkers can help inform treatment options.


Your lung cancer treatment options depend on your unique lung cancer. Learn more.


Work is being done to find cures and better early detection. Learn more.
