Supporters fighting some of the most common cancers do an effective job of promoting their causes. Breast cancer awareness, for example, has risen significantly through the October “Pink Ribbon” campaign. While breast cancer is the most common type of cancer, it does not claim the most lives; that distinction belongs to lung cancer. Following breast cancer, it is also the second most common form of the disease.
Lung Cancer Statistics
Did you know that…
- Lung cancer accounts for approximately 27% of all cancer deaths.
- It causes more deaths than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined.
- The National Cancer Institute estimates that in 2016, there will be over 158,000 deaths due to lung cancer. Breast cancer is estimated to cause about 41,000. While both numbers are alarming, many people aren’t aware of the number of deaths related to lung cancer.
Increasing Lung Cancer Awareness
There is hope! November 2016 is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. LCAM is designed to increase awareness of lung cancer, and to spread the word about the benefits of early detection. It is also a time when we can recognize and support those who are walking the lung cancer journey and remember those who have passed. Many national and international organizations are joining in the efforts to increase awareness of lung cancer as well as the need for more research dollars. Join us in the fight against lung cancer!
