In addition to the genetic reasons, cancers can’t happen with healthy lifestyles, lung cancer included.
How can we stop lung cancer at most? We’d better get to know well of the risks of lung cancer and reduce it in the first place.
Smoking is considered as the biggest cause of lung cancer. For example, among 10 patients with lung cancers, more than 8 are relevant to smoking, including passive smoking.
Now you can understand the meaning of giving up smoking? The sooner you stop, the sooner your risk goes down.
2. Air pollution
Lung is the organ for breath. If we breath dirty dust every day into it, gradually it will get dark and worse. In the end, those dust will trigger lung cancer.
Mask against dust is a daily must under a bad environment.
3. Lung disease history
If you have some lung diseases before, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and tuberculosis (TB), you are much more likely to get the lung cancer.
4.Exposure to radon gas
Radon gas is a kind of radioactive gas. In general, it comes from rocks and soils that contains tiny uranium.
Almost 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths out of radon gas happen in the United States each year.
Remember those the following names and avoid them: asbestos, silica, and diesel exhaust.
6. Genetic risk
If your cancer is genetic, it’s not easy to cure. But you should also be positive, higher risk doesn’t mean necessary morbidity. And Researchers are digging in the genetic lung cancer.
7. Previous radiotherapy treatment
When it comes to radiotherapy treatment, we can’t skip the side effects, and lung cancer is one of them.
8. immunity decrease
People with HIV or AIDS bear a lowered immunity, making an increased risk of lung cancer.
Besides, people who take medicines to suppress immunity after an organ transplant are more likely to have lung cancer.
If you can handle these risks, except for the gene-related and treatment-related, you will prevent the lung cancer as much as possible.
