Non-Smokers can Develop Lung Cancer

Radon and secondhand smoke are the biggest contributors of lung cancer for nonsmokers. American Lung Association senior medical advisor, Dr Albert Rizzo, said lung cancer tumors expand up to a centimeter in diameter. When they are in an area with pain fibers or block blood vessels or airways they can start creating notable symptoms. Lung cancer is very serious as your lungs are the organ which carry life giving oxygen to your body upon which every cell of your body requires. In more advanced cases of lung cancer there is only a 4 to 5 percent chance of living 5 years. If found earlier the survival rate is better but still dismal at 50% survival of living 5 years.

Radon is the Leading Cause of Lung Cancer for Nonsmokers
