How Do Doctors Detect and Diagnose Lung Cancer?

x-ray-image-568241_1280.jpgIn honor of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, we are sharing a series of posts on our blog as part of our effort to inform others about the dangers of this deadly cancer. In previous posts, we have discussed the toxic substances (such as smoking, asbestos, and other chemicals) that can cause lung cancer, who is typically at risk of developing it, and what actions can be taken to mitigate risk. For at-risk individuals, early detection is important as it can be a deciding factor in the prognosis and treatment. For these reasons, heavy smokers or individuals who have been exposed to large amounts of asbestos, radon, diesel fumes, or other toxic carcinogens are encouraged to get screened before symptoms occur.
