Oct. 13, 2017– What is lung cancer? What are the risk factors for
lung cancer? Can it be prevented or detected early? What are the new lung
cancer screening guidelines?
Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer in both men and women in
the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco smoking
is by far the leading cause of lung cancer. At least 80 percent of lung
cancer deaths are caused by smoking, and many others are caused by exposure
to secondhand smoke.
Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 25, as
Kenyon Meadows, M.D., board-certified radiation oncologist with the
Southeast Georgia Health System Cancer Care Center, presents “Lung Cancer Screening: Is it Right for Me?” The
Lunch and Learn For Your Health lecture will be held at the Golden Isles
