Did you know that lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer in adults in the United States?
It is also the leading cause of death from cancer.
Treatment for lung cancer is much more effective when the disease is caught in its earlier stages.

Most people know that smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States.
