Introduction: Lung cancer
Cancer of the lung is mostly related to smoking or tobacco use.
Because of the prevalence of these practices,
lung cancer is
one of the most common types of cancer.
Some of the symptoms include chronic cough,
coughing up blood, or chest pain.
However, patients with only persistent coughing
do not always seek medical advice early enough.
Even when they do, lung cancer is sometimes misdiagnosed
as something less harmful,
making lung cancer the 4th most claimed malpractice injury.
