Lung Cancer (Deadly Diseases and Epidemics)


Lung cancer—the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lung tissues—is the number one killer among cancer patients: Lung cancer alone accounts for 28.5 percent of all cancer-related deaths. Yet, in over 85 percent of the cases, the disease might have been prevented by eliminating its main cause: smoking. Lung cancer is especially deadly because it has no distinct, exclusive symptoms. And by the time it is detected, the disease is usually too advanced to cure. This potentially life-saving book offers important details on new methods for early detection, improvements in conventional treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy), and the development of new therapies that specifically target cancer cells.
