November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November 2, 2011

More people in the United States die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. It is the second most common cancer in both men (after prostate cancer) and women (after breast cancer), accounting for about 15% of all new cancers. It mainly occurs in older adults, with an average age at the time of diagnosis of 71.

We are proud to participate in Lung Cancer Awareness Month by hosting a free seminar series on the latest advances in diagnosis, treatment and research.
