Lung Cancer is a disease that occurs when cancer cells grow in the lungs. Currently, about 90% of all lung cancer cases are related to smoking, while pollutants and other toxins make up for the remaining 10%. Within the United States, it is the leading cause of death for both men and women and usually occurs in two forms. The first form, non-small cell lung cancer, occurs when cancer cells grow and spread at a slow rate. The second form, small cell lung cancer, occurs when cancer cells grow at a rapid rate and spread to other parts of the body. Lung Cancer symptoms may include, a lingering cough that worsens over time, constant chest pain, shortness of breath, swelling of the neck and face and the loss of appetite.
