Lung Cancer Risk Assessment

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a cancer that starts in the lungs. Two main types of lung cancer cause about 95 percent of lung cancer cases. The major cause of both types is smoking cigarettes. But people who don’t smoke may get lung cancer, too. Learn about risks you might have for lung cancer by taking this assessment. A risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the disease. And some people who get the disease may not have had any known risk factors.

Do you currently smoke cigarettes?
