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.
