Lung cancer is the number-one killer among cancer patients and one of the most preventable forms of the disease. An estimated 85 percent of lung cancer cases might have been prevented had the patient stopped smoking. Defined as the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lung tissues, lung cancer has indistinct and nonexclusive symptoms that often delay detection until the disease is too advanced to treat successfully. This book explains the causes and risks connected to lung cancer and how the disease progresses, and provides details on new methods for early detection, improvements in conventional treatment, and new therapies that specifically target cancer cells
