					Lung Cancer
Cancer is a well known disease to almost all of us. Every year many
victims are falling prey to this deadly disease. Up to now no such
medicine has been discovered that can cure cancer disease. Cancer
develops in the form of a tumor and slowly and steadily these cancer
cells increase in number. The reason because of which cancer is a deadly
disease is that it shows no external symptoms in the victim's body. It is
said that if cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, it can be cured.
There are many forms of cancer which affect the lives of thousands of
people. One of the forms is lung cancer. Lung cancer is still affecting
the lives of thousands of people. There are many different causes of lung
cancer. The top most factor of causing lung cancer is smoking. The
harmful substances of smoke destroy the lung cells. It is not necessary
that a person who does not smoke can't get lung cancer. If a particular
person is regularly exposed to the tobacco smoke, the risk of lung cancer
is higher.
There are many other factors too which are responsible for cancer. These
include some natural factors too which are not in our control. These
things include radon, asbestos, nickel, chromium, tar etc. These things
are highly responsible for causing lung cancer and they mostly affect
those people who work in the factories of these substances. The other
major cause of lung cancer is air pollution. The risk of becoming a
victim of lung cancer is higher in those cities which have high
percentage of air pollution.
If cancer is diagnosed in an early stage it can be cured using some
medication and precautions. There are many medicines available which help
in resisting the cancer cells from growing inside the body if diagnosed
in an early stage. According to some experts, a good diet is very helpful
in protecting the body from the deadly cancer disease. A diet rich in
fruits, green vegetables, low fat stuff, grains and preservatives is very
helpful in minimizing the risk of lung cancer. Avoiding the use of
alcohol is also very helpful in reducing the risk of deadly lung cancer.
The other factor which minimizes the risk of cancer is fitness of the
body. According to experts, physically fit human beings are less prone to
lung cancer. If a person is maintaining a high fitness level, he can
avoid lung cancer even after performing cigarette smoking.
There are many vitamins, drugs and other chemical agents available which
are helpful in reducing the risk or delaying the growth of cancer and are
called as chemoprevention. Many scientists are trying their best to make
a medicine using these drugs and vitamins which can be helpful in curing
lung cancer. But up to now no such medication has been discovered which
can be proved helpful in curing lung cancer completely.
