What is lung cancer
Lung cancer is a growth of abnormal cells that don’t grow into healthy cells. Then the cells grow into tumors and then it gets even worse. Then the tumors interfere with the flow of oxygen to your body.
The causes of lung cancer/ symptoms
Lung cancer can be caused by secondhand smoke. Smoking in general is the main cause of lung cancer. Only about 80% of smokers get lung cancer.
The body’s reaction to chemotherapy, radiation, or targeted treatments depends on a number of factors such as length of treatment, dosage prescribed, and a person’s health history. Most side effects are short term, but some can last throughout your treatment and even for some time afterward. Even though side effects can be uncomfortable or painful doctors now have many ways to reduce the pain.
