Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women in the U.S.
Lung cancer affects both people who smoke and those who do not. It is an aggressive disease in which the cells in the lung begin to grow out of control, forming tumors. Lung cancer can spread very quickly throughout the body. An estimated 100,000 people living in the U.S. are diagnosed with lung cancer every year.
