Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout educates people about lung cancer, which occurs when cells in the lungs change and become abnormal. It explains the function of the lungs, cancer cells, and how lung cancer cells can spread to a different part of the body in a process called metastasis. It identifies risk factors for lung cancer and describes its signs, clarifying that in its early stages it often has no symptoms. It explains the difference between the two main types of lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer. The document discusses care for lung cancer, outlining tests and treatment options.
