Plus, you have access to a host of supportive services, including counselors, support groups and chaplains.

About lung cancer
In 2009, approximately 219,440 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in the United States. Lung cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in both men and women, and it is the leading cause of cancer death for both. People who smoke are 10 to 20 times more likely to get lung cancer than people who do not smoke.
Despite the serious outlook for people with lung cancer, many people are successfully treated. Much depends on the stage of the cancer and how early it is diagnosed. Regular exams can help detect lung cancer early. In addition, a lung health assessment can evaluate your personal risk for lung cancer. Also, people who quit smoking have a lower risk of lung cancer than if they had continued to smoke.
