November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month
Lung Cancer is the second most common cancer, and leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Each year, about 200,000 people in the United States are told they have lung cancer and more than 150,000 people die from this disease.
  • When a person breathes in secondhand smoke, it is just like smoking. In the U.S., about 7,300 people who never smoked die from lung cancer due to secondhand smoke every year.
  • Lung cancer rates are decreasing nationally, as fewer people smoke cigarettes.
  • Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in the body.
  • About 90% of lung cancers are linked with cigarette smoking.
How can you lower your risk?
  • Quit smoking and avoid secondhand smoke.
  • Get your home tested for radon gas. Radon is odorless, colorless and tasteless. Long-term exposure to radon can lead to lung cancer.
Every 25 minutes, an American dies from radon-related lung cancer. Two in five Minnesota homes have dangerous levels of radon gas. It is the No. 1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer (after tobacco) in smokers. Radon testing is easy, inexpensive and only takes three to five days. Winter is the best time to test for radon. Get your discount test kit.
