6 Risk Factors for Lung Cancer

According to the National Health Service, there are many causes of lung cancer, including smoking, air pollution, workplace (such as asbestos, arsenic) or home environment exposure (such as radon), family history of lung cancer, and history of lung-related diseases (such as asthma , chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tuberculosis), cooking without using a range hood, etc., will increase the risk of lung cancer.

The National Health Administration further stated that the cooking habits of Chinese people are different from those in Europe and the United States, because long-term exposure to cooking fumes has potential health risks to the human body.

According to previous studies on lung cancer among non-smoking females in Taiwan, women who did not use range hoods while cooking had an 8.3 times higher risk of developing lung cancer than those who did.

LDCT screening can reduce cancer risk

The National Health Administration reminds that if you want to prevent lung cancer, it is recommended that the public can pass the LDCT screening, which can reduce the death rate of heavy smokers by 20%.

It is a computerized tomography examination of the chest, which has the opportunity to detect lung cancer early, especially for the detection of lung nodules smaller than 1 cm, with higher sensitivity.

At the same time, according to the size of the nodule and the morphological characteristics of the CT image, the possibility of benignity and malignancy is evaluated, and follow-up clinical treatment suggestions are provided.
