The death toll due to lung cancer is more than a quarter of all cancers compared. The medical experts are struggling to reduce the death toll amongst patients of lung cancer. High risk group of lung cancer i.e. individuals who are smokers should consider low dose CT Scan to screen cancer.

Lung cancer is considered very serious form of cancer. There are generally no symptoms until the cancer spreads to other parts of the body. There are two types of Lung Cancer:
- Small Cell
- Non-Small Cell.
