2 individual of 100,000 men and women affected by cancer each year? (National Cancer Institute, 2018)Subject/problem In this research, I will discuss the lung cancer in general and how it develops in the lung and then I will mention its causes. After that, I will talk about how smoking has a very strong impact on the lung that may help to develop lung cancer. Finally, I will end with some ways to prevent developing lung cancer.Background InformationCancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control.
When cancer starts in the lungs, it is called lung cancer (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). The sign of lung cancer may take years to become noticeable. The sign or symptoms may occur in the chest as coughing, pain in the chest and back, change in the voice, and sounds with each breath. Or occur in somewhere else in the body such as headaches, weakness, muscle wasting, and unjustified weight loss. Unfortunately, there may be no clear causes of lung cancer, but in most cases, lung cancer occur because of smoking seeing that smoking may damage the cells that protect the lungs. Also, smoking may shorten the life of people by 11-12 years.
Not just that, smoking may affect skin, mouth, bones, brain, and much more of the body parts. So, quitting smoking can lower health risk, and also lower the risk of lung cancer by 50% after 10 years. But, you can avoid lung cancer by avoiding smoking, eat healthy food, and exercise for 4 or more days a week.
If you, unfortunately, have lung cancer, you can treat that based on your stage, health, and preferences by surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, radiosurgery, or alternative medicines.Thesis StatementSmoking, air pollution, a family history, and radon gas May affect the lung cancer.?Outline (informal)?TopicLung cancer and smokingBody 1• Definition of lung cancer, and the nature of lung cancer in detail• Causes of lung cancer• A real story about someone affected by lung cancer• Detecting cancerBody 2• Focusing on smoking, which is one of the lung cancer causes.• Reasons for the dangers of smoking• The relation between lung cancer and smoking in detailBody 3• Preventing lung cancer• Popular and effective ways of treatment• Discuss each way in detail
