From Lung Cancer Overview
"Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer in the United States today. Lung cancer kills more people than breast, cervical, colon, and prostate cancer combined, and does not generally show any symptoms until its late stages."
From Lung Cancer FAQs
Why is early lung cancer screening important?
"Because lung cancer has no symptoms in its early stages, more than 85 percent of the men and women who are diagnosed with lung cancer today are diagnosed in a late stage, after symptoms occur and when there is very little chance of cure. As a result, approximately 95% of the 173,000 people diagnosed each year die from the disease."
From Race & Ethnicity and Lung Cancer
"There could be a possible relationship between the biological differences in ethnicity (race) and how individuals may react to drugs, toxins and other external factors. Numerous studies are being conducted to try to understand the differences in how biology can effect metabolism and susceptibility to certain diseases and why this seems to vary between individuals of different genetic backgrounds."
