Lung cancer – can the disease be avoided?


Of course there is a chance to minimize the risk of lung cancer, the first and most important piece of advice is to quit smoking. The more time has passed since quitting, the lower the risk of lung cancer.

The benefits of quitting the cigarette addiction are not only related to the reduced risk of lung cancer, thanks to giving up tobacco we can avoid many other diseases, for example heart and blood vessels. It is good to know that there is no such thing as lung cancer screening tests, although you can regularly take pictures of the chest (e.g. x-rays of the lungs), this does not reduce the number of deaths (compared to the entire population) from cancer, but increases newly diagnosed cancer.
