Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the most deadly cancer in America. It kills more men and women than breast, colon, and prostate cancer combined.

Cigarette smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer.

  • Early Symptoms of Lung Cancer
  • Chest pain
  • Cough that doesn’t go away
  • Coughing up blood
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss with no known reason
  • Loss of appetite

Smoking Cession is a great way to improve your health and decrease your risk of developing lung cancer.


November 15 is an excellent time to quit smoking.  An annual initiative of the American Cancer Society, The Great American Smokeout encourages smokers to plan to quit smoking. The American Cancer Society has a wealth of resources to help motivate patients to kick the habit.
