As we head into the month of November, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, I want to share some facts about the deadliest cancer in the United States. Lung cancer kills more people than colon, prostate, and breast cancer combined. More women die from lung cancer than breast cancer and it kills more men than prostate cancer. The high fatality rate is a result diagnosing the disease too late, at a time when surgery is no longer an option.
Unfortunately, even though it’s such a problem, there is very little public dialogue about lung cancer.
