Reduce The Risk of Lung Cancer 2015: QUIT SMOKING!!! The biggest cause of lung cancer is smoking. The sooner you quit, the Better your Health - it is always worth giving it up.

Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the lungs, it is called lung cancer. Lung cancer claims more lives each year than do colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancers combined.

 Smoking is by far the most important preventable cause of cancer in the world. Lung cancer and smoking often, go hand in hand, and people who don’t smoke may get lung cancer too. We are still in the holiday season,  if you are a smoker, giving up smoking is the best present you can give yourself, your friends and family.
 
The signs and symptoms of lung cancer can take years to develop and they may not appear until the disease is advanced. As lung cancer stages advance, noticeable lung cancer symptoms include:

  • Coughing: having  a cough for more than 3 weeks,
  • Wheezing, shortness of breath, 
  • Bloody mucus.

If the original lung cancer has spread, a person may feel symptoms in other places in the body. Common places for lung cancer to spread include other parts of the lungs, lymph nodes, bones, brain, liver, and adrenal glands.

Symptoms of lung cancer that may occur elsewhere in the body includes:

  • Loss of appetite or unexplained weight loss
  • Muscle wasting (also known as cachexia)
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches, bone or joint pain
  • Bone fractures not related to accidental injury
Neurological symptoms, such as: 
  • Unsteady gait or memory loss
  • Neck or facial swelling
  • General weakness
  • Bleeding 
  • Blood clots

Be aware of what is normal for your body and look out for any changes. If you have a symptom that worries you or that is unusual for you,  Go to your Healthcare provider for a check up. The earlier a cancer is picked up, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely treatment is to be successful.

We can help to prevent cancer by avoiding things that we know increase our risk of certain cancers, such as smoking, eating unhealthy food and being in the sun for too long.
