5 factors contributing with lung cancer
FACTORS CONTRIBUTING WITH LUNG CANCER: Smoking and Secondhand Smoke Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor for lung cancer.2 3 In the United States, cigarette smoking causes about 90% of lung cancers. [ Exposures at Home and Work That May Cause Lung Cancer Several exposures in the home or workplace may cause lung cancer Family History Risk of lung cancer may be higher if a person's parents, siblings (brothers or sisters), or children have had lung cancer Radiation Therapy to the Chest Cancer survivors who had radiation therapy to the chest are at higher risk of lung cancer.21
Patients at highest risk include those treated for Hodgkin disease and women with breast cancer treated with radiation after a mastectomy (but not a lumpectomy). Diet Scientists are studying many different foods and dietary supplements to see whether they increase the risk of getting lung cancer. There is much we still need to know. We do know that smokers who take beta-carotene supplements have increased risk of lung cancer.22 For more information, visit NCI's Diet and CancerExternal Web Site Icon and Lung Cancer Prevention ]
