Cigarette smoke, with its high concentration of carcinogens, inhaled by both smokers and nonsmokers is leading cause of lung cancer. Facts about environmental exposure to Radon compounded with smoking increases risk of lung cancer. Another principal cause of lung cancer is occupational exposure to carcinogens like asbestos, which has been documented in many Mesothelioma lung cancer cases.
Treatment of lung cancer is currently limited in its efficacy. Different types of carcinomas involve different regions of lung, giving rise to different symptoms, and requiring different lines of treatment.
Lung cancer treatment is also different in cases where cancer cells spread from other organs to lungs. Apart from surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy in cancer treatment, oncogene research results are positive in their efforts to find drugs that "turn off" abnormal genes, ending cancer growth.
