CANCER TYPES

LUNG CANCER

LUNG CANCER

Lung cancer forms in the tissue of the lung – usually in the cells that line the airways. It can invade nearby tissues and form tumors. Lung cancer can start anywhere in the lungs and affect any part of the respiratory system. The cancer can spread, or metastasize, to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body. The two main types of lung cancer are small-cell and non-small-cell.

The National Cancer Institute expects to see approximately 224,400 new cases of lung cancer in 2016 and more than 158,000 deaths. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths.
