About Lung Cancer
Each year, lung cancer kills nearly 160,000 Americans— taking more lives than breast, prostate, colon, liver, kidney, and skin cancers combined.(1) When lung cancer is caught early, 54% of patients survive for 5 years or more. But because this disease has no early symptoms, it is usually detected when the cancer has already spread and chances of survival are slim. 85% of lung cancers are diagnosed late-stage.
