Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that starts off in one or both images. People who smoke have the greatest risk of lung cancer. The overall 5 year survival rate for lung cancer combining all stages is roughly 15%. Early detection of lung cancer can increase the chance of survival among people.
