Lung Cancer Awareness Month Promotes Respiratory Health

by | Nov 6, 2013 | Asbestos-Related Illness |

What are you doing for Lung Cancer Awareness Month? Even if you do not smoke and have zero history of lung cancer in your family, November might be a great time to get check up on your lung health.

Keeping a check on your lung health is important, because the symptoms of diseases like mesothelioma and lung cancer are hard to spot early on. It is often the case that a patient is diagnosed with one of these diseases during a check-up completely separate from a lung condition.

Many people think that lung cancer is a “smokers’ disease,” and cannot develop if they have led a healthy lifestyle free of toxic smoke. This is a myth. Anyone who has lungs can get lung cancer, so get that x-ray today!
